Over a year and a half after the infamous #Concerned1950 students made waves at the University of Missouri, the university is finally reaping the benefits of caving into the Black Lives Matter rhetoric. According to Heat Street, the incoming freshman class at Mizzou is only 4,009 students. This is a staggering 35% decrease from the entering class in Fall 2015 when the protests occurred following four questionable incidents on campus.
Heat Street continues:
This is the second year in a row that Mizzou has seen its freshman class decline, a drop directly linked to the raucous Fall 2015 protests, which contributed to the resignation of both the university’s president and its chancellor.
The raucous protests — which were sparked by various incident of alleged racism, racist graffiti and “hate crimes” on campus — were enormously damaging to the university’s reputation, scaring away prospective students in droves.
As a result of the dramatic decrease in enrollment at Mizzou, seven residence halls will be “offline.” This comes as a result of the considerable backlash that the University received for how it handled itself following the self-righteous protests. Many parents and alumni responded by refusing to contribute money to the public university. For example, donations to its athletics department dropped 72% last year.
These protests led Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro to visit Mizzou and give a speech trashing the protests, the Left, and the academics such as Melissa Click who allowed the madness to continue. Watch below:
