The drop in enrollment this fall
could mean tightening a' few belts
This year's fall enrollment count
is 4053 students.
The figure is down 133 from last
fall's 4186 students according to
the Registrar's Office .
Bill Fowler assistant vice presi-
dent for finance described this as a
"major concern" to the university.
"We can gain back through par-
tial reductions in the operating bud-
get" Fowler said.
John Tyson assistant to the presi-
dent said the tuition and fees make
up about 60 percent of the universi-
ty's operating budget.
The operating budget does not
include renovations or special pro-
jects. The budget ouly includes the
"basic costs needed to keep the
school running day to day" be said.
Fowler said that figure is closer
to 80 percent when considering
housing food and the many other
service revenues brought in by stu-
dents. The remaining amount is paid by
gifts and endowments said Tyson.
The total endowment of ACU is
currently about $53 million he

man will join the teaching staff in
"We want him to become a more
integrated member of the theatre
and faculty" Hester said.
Hester said be wants students
from other majors to become
involved in the theatre productions.
"We want to break mto the very
large segment of talented kids who
have been just either wary of the
time commitment or just 'I can't
compete with those kids that arc
theatre majors' " he said.
