Re: New President

Well heck Neckerchief, if you have smaller freshmen classes taking the place of larger senior classes, total enrollment will drop naturally. But I have heard good things about this freshmen class and it's numbers. We maybe down a bit in the Fall, but I expect the size of the freshmen class to stabil...

Re: Updates to faculty layoff plan and other stuff

You know, what people need to understand is that WIU and Macomb walk hand in hand. It’s not like UIS where the school is just an add on, or UIC in the middle of the westside of Chicago. If dirty laundry is aired in either of these cases it’s a thing, but not a huge thing, but in Macomb it's differen...

Re: New football building

The specs were sent to three different architectural firms so they could come up with preliminary designs. These should be finished in the very near future. That is not rumor nor conjecture, just the facts! ;) jc

Re: Updates to faculty layoff plan and other stuff

We can not afford to have a missed step! And the future has everything todo with WIU/Macomb with some help from the quad cities.
