ON-DEMAND: WGN-TV broadcast of 2014 McDonald’s Thanksgiving Parade

Illinois students continue to decline at U. of I.

There are fewer freshmen at the University of Illinois that are from Illinois, than ever before.


They make up 73-percent of this fall’s freshman class.

That’s down from 90-percent less than a decade ago.

The university says this was not intentional, even though out-of-state students pay higher tuition.

The school says more international students accepted admission than they predicted, and more Illinois applicants are actually turning down the university.
