FAMU Enrollment Decreases

(Tallahassee, FL) — Nearly two years after the hazing death of a Florida A&M band member, enrollment numbers at the university are seeing a steep decline. It has decreased by more than 12-hundred in just two years. Interim President Larry Robinson says the loss of students is something all historically black colleges and universities are facing nationwide.

The decrease in enrollment will ultimately cost the university an expected 12-million dollars over the same time frame.
The school is working with parents and students to better prepare them on attending the university in the upcoming years.
