University of Wyoming enrollment numbers for the fall semester are down about 1.5 percent from the fall 2012 semester. The University’s enrollment report shows that freshman enrollment numbers have stayed steady, but Vice President for student affairs, Sara Axelson, says more significant were other changes in the class makeup.
It came down to the final day, but the Wyoming legislature finally approved a bill that would require students to take vocational or arts classes in order to qualify for the Hathaway Scholarship. The idea was to remove a foreign language requirement in order for students to be able to take other courses.
But Senator Phil Nicholas argued that it was important to allow students who wanted four years of foreign language to be able to have it. Bill Sponsor Sam Krone says it was a good idea.
