Re: Division 2

An enrollment of 8,000 would be in mid-range of the current GLVC members.

Other GLVC members at that mid-point include UIS, U-Indy, Maryville University, Lewis University, Missouri S&T, Southern Indiana, and Truman State.

The largest GLVC member is UMSL with an enrollment of 16,719.

I'm hearing Fall 2018 enrollment of around 8K.
Enrollment for Fall 2017 was 9,441.

A Fall 2018 enrollment of 8,000 would be a decrease of 15% in comparison to Fall 2017.
