The ghost of social justice warriors and Professor Melissa Glick still lingers at the University of Missouri. In the year since the students protested against phantom racism, applications to Mizzou have plummeted.
The Maneater reported on Tuesday that three dorms on campus are forced to close because of declining freshman enrollment. Residential Life Director Frankie Minor said in an email obtained by Maneater that the sites were being taken “offline” to see if enrollment increased in the near future.
“Historically every year between now and August, various situations occur that result in position openings, e.g. normal attrition and voluntary staff choices, as well as unplanned academic or personal challenges,” Minor said in the email. “If necessary, we will offer alternative employment opportunities at comparable compensation to the remaining staff.”
This brings it to a total of seven dorms that will go “offline” next year because of low enrollment.
Back in December, Minor said that freshman enrollment in housing had declined by nearly 25 percent.
It’s possible that Mizzou’s terrible reputation is part of the reason students don’t want to apply to that school.
Social justice warriors caused mass protests on campus back in November 2015. Making matters worse, the administration bowed down to most of their demands, and it took them nearly a year to fire disgraced Professor Melissa Glick who was caught threatening students.
