PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Fewer students mean fewer employees at Drexel University.

The school has laid off “several dozen” administrative employees after a new admissions policy brought in fewer freshmen for the upcoming fall semester.

Senior vice president for university communications Lori Doyle tells The Philadelphia Inquirer (https://bit.ly/1Nv4Ht7 ) the school knew it would have to cut administrative costs after it made the conscious decision to take a smaller class size to increase quality.

No faculty members were let go. But the layoffs and other cost-saving measures will save $18 million.

Little more than 2,900 students have committed to attend Drexel in the fall.
