Governor JB Pritzker says he’s thrilled about enrollment numbers at Illinois State University. The school welcomed its largest freshman class in 33 years.
Pritzker says education is a big focus for the state.
The governor says the capital bill that was signed into law over the summer invests into schools around the state, specifically 143-million dollars into ISU.
While numbers are solid at ISU, many other schools around the state have reported declining enrollment.
