ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. (AP) - Elizabeth City State University is cutting its budget for the coming year by nearly $3 million.

Local media outlets reported that the historically black college is cutting $2.8 million under orders from the University of North Carolina system.

Those cuts will eliminate 34 positions, some of which are already vacant.

Enrollment at the 124-year-old college dropped to fewer than 1,900 students in the fall. That’s about half of what enrollment was five years ago.

The school has cut $5 million from its budget over the last three years.

The school said it also will take advantage of energy savings and reduce technology maintenance costs
