Mizzou’s Enrollment Has Plummeted Since It Got Woke

She was the Click heard ’round the world: “Hey, who wants to help me get this reporter out of here? I need some muscle over here!”

It’s been a year and a half since the students and faculty of the University of Missouri showed us their unique approach to journalism and free speech. How’s that working out for them?

Jillian Kay Melchior, Heat Street:

New data shows freshman enrollment at the behemoth University of Missouri is just 4,009—down 35 percent since Fall 2015…

The raucous protests — which were sparked by various incidents of alleged racism, racist graffiti and “hate crimes” on campus — were enormously damaging to the university’s reputation, scaring away prospective students in droves…

In response to the declining enrollment and a shrinking student body, Mizzou has taken a total of seven residence halls “offline” in the past two years.

Weird. It’s almost as if people don’t want to pay tens of thousands of dollars a year to be screamed at and scolded for the color of their skin. They can get that anywhere.

Look on the bright side, Mizzou: You’re becoming an increasingly safe space. You can’t have students disagreeing with each other if you don’t have any students!
