The University of Missouri has seen its freshman enrollment sink in the aftermath of the campus protests that started two years ago, the Gateway Pundit reports.
Since 2015, freshman enrollment at the flagship Columbia campus has significantly dropped by 35 percent.
Parents and students were put off by the uncontrolled protests that inspired similar movements at colleges across the country.
Prior to the demostrations, the university, also known as Mizzou, was having solid growth and constructing new dormitories.
But due to lost tuition and a drop in state funding, the university was forced to make budget cuts, which led to the temporary closing of seven dormitories and dismissal of over 400 employees.
The protests were sparked by complaints of racial bigotry by university officials. Joined by their black-majority football team, students forced the campus chancellor and the university system president to step down.
