Enrollment is down at the regional campuses of Indiana University.
That includes IU South Bend, where numbers from the fall of 2020 show over 4900 new students. The South Bend Tribune reports that this was a slight dip from 2019 and in line with recent trends.
This fall there are 500 fewer new students compared to last year.
University officials believe the robust job market and student exhaustion are to blame for the dip in enrollment.
