The University of Missouri is expecting fewer freshmen on campus compared to last year, but this year’s estimated entering class of 6,165 students still will be comparable to recent record classes. MU administrators said they anticipated a drop in freshmen as the number of high school students in Missouri and the Midwest declines. In spite of the decline in freshmen, university officials said the university’s total enrollment is up. Applications from out-of-state students have increased by 1,084 over last year, and by 3,398 from two years ago. Deposits from out-of-state students dropped by 61 this year, but that number is still up 423 from two years ago.
