LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - The University of Wyoming has seen a slight decline in enrollment for the spring semester, though it isn’t nearly as sharp as the decline in the fall.

The Laramie Boomerang reports (https://bit.ly/2kNlXla ) that counts from the 15th day of class - Friday - indicate enrollment is down about 1.6 percent from spring 2016, or about 188 students fewer students. In fall 2016, UW was down by 234 students on the 15th day compared to fall 2015.

Headcounts from the eighth day of classes saw 117 fewer freshmen students between spring 2016 and 2017, a nearly 8 percent drop. There was also a 3 percent drop in seniors.

UW Vice President for Student Affairs Sara Axelson says the university needs to break a trend of stagnant enrollment.
