MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Fall enrollment for Kansas State University is down for the first time since 2006.

The Manhattan Mercury (https://bit.ly/1QThA1U ) reports that overall enrollment for 2015 is 24,212, down 554 students from fall 2014. President Kirk Schulz discussed the numbers Friday while presenting his annual State of the University address. He says the situation will be discussed as the university puts together an enrollment management task force to set goals and look for ways to grow.

The fall enrollment count has increased steadily each year since 2006, when the number fell by 40 students from 23,181 to 23,141.

Schulz pointed out classes haven’t yet reached the 20th day, which is the time of the official count for fall enrollment each year. The number is likely to fall slightly more by that time.
