Maybe more are stating local bc of the pandemic plus the state is growing in pop. Can’t wait till we hit 50k down the road.
If we go undefeated this year, we’ll be at 50K next Fall. There is a correlation with a winning football team and enrollment. At least applications will increase dramatically.
I think the correlation is between winning teams and applications. Last football season disproves your theory right there I think.
I definitely think it’s covid related
At least one of our posters suggested that some state schools, including UH, would go out of business because of Covid 19.
These numbers bear out that it was a crazy assertion.
I wonder what the number of applicants was and
what the acceptance rate is at now. And do we know
how many students this semester may be online only or nearly completely online ?
Correlation between winning teams and applicants
is pretty strong I think; but covid effect changes everything too.
Looking forward to celebrating when we hit 50k !
It’s actually the opposite. Covid hurts the big schools more in that kids say if I can’t have that on campus experience, I don’t want to have my parents paying. UH will be fine bc we have a mix of on campus and commuter. I know a family friend’s kid that is a great student that is attending UH bc all his friends are staying local for instance.
