Our recruitment numbers are only down very slightly. I think like ten less for the guys and maybe 20 less for the girls.

Alot of schools are reporting declines in enrollement, but our paper actually just did a story about our enrollment being the HIGHEST in school history. There was an 11% increase between this fall and the last:

We are also experiencing dorm overcrowding as well:

I think alot of students are sticking close to home these days, rather than venturing further out to attend other schools that may cost more.

Cleveland State's website mention we had a high enrollment this fall semester as the best in the last 10+ years.

It would make sense if the economy is affecting recruitment due to lack of being able to spare money. Ironically enough, the economy has had no effect on the college that I go to; in fact, it's been increasing over the last few years but obviously not due to the financial crisis, haha.

I feel like my school has the exact opposite problem. We have grown by 4,000 students (possibly 5,000, i'm not 100% sure) since i started my freshmen year, and sorority life has increased 10 fold. My plege class, quota was 49 (i believe), last year it was 59, and this year, quota was in INSANE 70 (We took 76...).
My school is very new (Happy 12 years FGCU!) as well as greek life. This is only the 5th year of formal recruitment.
Time will tell of course.
