Mizzou Shuts Down Three Dorm Halls due to Plunging Enrollment

, Spencer Irvine, Leave a comment

Mizzou, infamous for the Melissa Click scandal (where a professor muscled a student reporter and his cameraman during a protest), has seen its student enrollment plummet in its dorm halls to the point that three dorm halls are being taken offline for the time being.

A couple factors for this could be the bad PR from the Click scandal, the expensive contracts for dorm halls compared to off-campus student housing, and general sentiment toward college degrees and college debt and loans.

But, this still does not look good from an optics standpoint if you’re a Missouri taxpayer, a Mizzou administrator or employee.
