EUNICE, La. (AP) - Enrollment for the spring 2012 semester at LSU Eunice was down from the spring 2011 semester, but showed positive signs that the enrollment slippage last year may have slowed. That's according to final regular spring semester enrollment figures released by the university's registrar's office.
The Daily World reports (http://bit.ly/ym3Nq6 ) enrollment is 2,972 students. LSUE's enrollment for Spring 2012 semester was only 0.3 percent down from the fall of 2011 enrollment of 2,982.
LSUE Chancellor William Nunez says traditionally spring enrollments are always less than those in the fall.
LSUE experienced drops of 4.5 percent between semesters in the 2010-2011 academic year, 2.9 percent in 2009-2010, and 2.5 percent in 2008-2009.
