The Californian reports today that enrollment at Mt. San Jacinto Community College is soaring, with an increase of about 15% above last year's enrollment...

The number of students at the Menifee campus has risen from 6,513 to 7,473 in the last year ---- an increase of almost 15 percent, college spokesman Bill Marchese said Friday.

But the newspaper goes on to report that enrollment at MSJC's Temecula campus have dropped also by about 15%.

MSJC rents out rooms at highschools in Temecula to offer classes to students in that area. So, is the increase of enrollments at the Menifee campus due to declining enrollments in Temecula?

Anne Motte, who sits on the MSJC Board, writes about this subject on her blog...

  1. Enrollments are increasing at msjc due to implementation last year of an aggressive enrollment policy to earn and capture all state growth funds and a new VP of instruction hired last year, who knew how to schedule to capture those funds. The new president(Zacovic) who hired the VP and captured those funds was fired for "no cause" by three board members last February. And,the previous president (Giese) who was unable to capture all available state growth funds and actually left $10,000,000 in accumulated lost growth for all future years, over his six years as president, was honored and named msjc "President Emeritus" by the threesome. It makes no sense.

  2. And where are they going to park? They are spilling into our neighborhoods. why not increase fees by 15 bucks a student and include parking lot parking?

  3. Yes parking is spilling over onto the streets because the students refuse to pay for parking (or can't afford it), it's cheaper to park in your neighborhood and walk to campus. I would be more worried about all the bank repos and broken down rentals in your heighborhood stinking up property value.
