    Re: Two NC Division 2 school's Enrollment Booming

    Very interesting that WSSU has taken on what amounts to a non-growth policy which is very contrary to other progressive state supported schools in the state.

    I'm sure that attitude really helps the state's UNC System annual funding folks determine where additional funds for classrooms, dorms, labs, etc, etc, should (and shouldn't) be directed between the schools.

      You got it, especially considering that WSSU currently is in the process of building $100 million worth of new buildings. https://www.wssu.edu/about/news/arti...-building.html

      New dorm opened this year, to go along with another dorm that was built a few years ago. New Science building should be done soon.

      And o yeah state law makers must really hate the right sized WSSU. Especially when a result of the right size was better quality students, and our students having the highest average starting salaries for the whole system right after the right size plan kicked in. https://www.journalnow.com/news/loca...774d16c1b.html

      Also, you know WSSU really doesn't care about the underserved that's why we didn't want in the reduced tuition..... https://www.wssu.edu/about/news/arti...ying-jobs.html

      Eagle tell us more doom gloom stories about how WSSU is so far behind and won't get any funding from the state. Also, I just don't know how little old UNCA can even survive based off of your mentality......

        Hey, I'm really glad to see that WSSU got some funding for some much needed new buildings and dorm from the state's UNC System's multi billion funds.

          No doom gloom stories about WSSU. But it's now crystal clear that the NC Promise Program would have benefited a lot of students in the Triad. In reference to UNC Asheville, it's much different than the others, it's the only designated liberal arts institution in the University of North Carolina system, and is harder to get into than WSSU. UNCA's average SAT is 1145, while WSSU's is 890. Simply put, it's the designated artsy artsy state supported school.

            WSSU intentionally went smaller to increase quality.

            WSSU has the highest retention rate of all HBCU's and UNCP in the UNC System.

            https://www.wunc.org/post/unc-system...al-composition

            https://www.wssu.edu/about/news/arti...ince-2014.html

            WSSU is gradually increasing enrollment and quality.

            Also 62 percent of WSSU new enrollees have WSSU as their firstv choice compared to 42 percent in 2014.

            UNCP us likely getting bigger due to Soldiers taking advantage of the tuition rate.

              Ten years ago, and still running?

              The latest reported average SAT / ACT scores for the 4 UNC System state supported Division 2 schools are:

              ECSU = 860

              FSU = 870

              WSSU = 890

              UNC-P = 910

                Hey Eagle, care to weigh in on the budget issues and the impact it is having on the Promise Schools?

                Western doesn't seem to be too happy about the $4.3 million owed to them.

                https://news-prod.wcu.edu/2020/01/wc...faculty-staff/

                Also, one of the local papers near UNCP has shared some additional insight on the budget and the Promise plan.

                    Your Governor Cooper's ongoing veto of the state budget is negatively effecting all UNC System schools, including much needed repairs and upgrades at WSSU, ECSU, FSU, and others. UNC Pembroke is continuing to honor the Promise Plan, but may have to hold off on new scheduled construction programs. Sad that the governor's stance is negatively effecting so many students across the state.

                      Are you referring to this veto:
                      NC House overrides budget veto in surprise vote with almost half of lawmakers absent

                      https://www.newsobserver.com/news/po...234962017.html

                      Pointing the finger at the Governor at this point is nonsense. The General Assembly had more than six months to pass a budget. This is the risk of being part of NC Promise. You are subject to the political games played in Raleigh by both parties.

                      While UNCP will honor the NC Promise program, the rate of enrollment growth will have to be lowered absent the supplement.

                        In my opinion, this hold back of the much needed funding for the UNC System (including 3 HBCU institutions) falls primarily on the shoulders of governor Cooper. It appears as though his insistence of pushing his own agenda appears to be a priority over supporting the dire needs of schools (and students) across the state. So, will the much needed funding being held up until his demands are met? It seems to be the case, as again politics supersedes the needs of the students and institutions. This may not be resolved until the ballots are placed.

                          I have a son that is a senior in HS and a mother-in-law in NC who lives in the sticks. I'm seriously would send my son to NC to live to get that $500 a semester. This is a GREAT DEAL. You have schools that cost $100K+ a year. My son has been accepted to 3 schools so far with an average price of 26K per year (in-state). GREAT DEAL and I'm glad to see ECSU is benefitting from it. God knows they need the money. I was just there for their winter homecoming.
