High gas prices lead to low Ivy Tech summer enrollment - Seth Slabaugh, Star-Press

Officials at the East Central Region of Ivy Tech Community College say high gasoline prices are partly to blame for a decline in summer enrollment. The number of summer students enrolled at the college's campuses in Muncie, Marion and Anderson is 4,300, compared to 4,900 last year, Mary Lewellen, vice chancellor of student affairs, said after a regional board of trustees meeting in Marion on Thursday. That 4,300 total could rise before the bulk of students start summer classes June 6, she noted.
