Edwardsville, Ill. – Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville saw a slight drop in enrollment this fall. That comes after 10 straight years of increases.

But it's a small dip: Enrollment is only 33 students fewer than last fall, at 13-460.

Campus leaders say fewer international students and higher graduate tuition are factors for the decline.
