Enrollment Chief Speaks to Numbers of Applicants

Vice President for Enrollment Richard DiFeliciantonio was quoted in a Chronicle of Higher Education article on new standards in the admissions field,¬†explaining that Ursinus has new requirements in essays and recommendations, to make sure that applicants are¬†interested, qualified students. The article notes that “in an era when many colleges are asking applicants to do less, some institutions have asked them to do more, purposely thinning the ranks of prospective students.” The article is found here with a Chronicle subscriber’s log-in: http://chronicle.com/article/Boston-College-Sees-a-Sharp/136683/
