Nebraska's student population
will decline about 12 per cent
this semester, Dr. George W.
Rosenlof, director of admissions,
estimated Wednesday on the
basis of completed registrations.
Rosenlof estimated that be
tween 7500 and 7800 students
would attend school this semes
ter as compared to 9000 for the
same period last year. About
4000 students had completed
registration Wednesday, with
about 5500 at the same time a
year ago.
Many students who started
their registration in the spring
have failed to complete the pro
cedure this fall, Rosenlof said.
3000 Graduates
During 1950, nearly 3000 stu
dents graduated from the Uni
versity. There have been approx
imately 1500 new registrations
received by the University. There
are about 400 transfer students.
Thus a deficit of about 1100 stu
dents from last fall is expected.
Nebraska's veteran student
seems due for a drop, since only
1200 veterans have registered.
About 1700 were enrolled last
semester. This
was a greater
drop than expected, Rosenlof
Foreign students on the cam-
pus will be about as numerous
as las-t vear. Rnsenlof sid About
150 are expected to enroll this
year. Two new exchange students
from Switzerland are expected
to arrive soon to attend school.
They will join two exchange
