Story by Stacy Wescoe focuses on the anticipated drop in college enrollment in 2009. She includes comments by Pete Rautzhan, dean of enrollment management at DeSales. In 2009, the majority of children of baby boomers will have completed their higher education. Since the gen eration following the boomers had fewer children, there will be a decrease in the number of high school students applying to college, reversing the trend set in the early 1980s. According to Rautzhan, DeSales is a regional versus national school and is backed by the Roman Catholic Church, providing a different pool of students. DeSales recruits mainly from students in the Greater Lehigh Valley, an area that is experiencing strong growth and development. Also, it has a strong minority recruiting program and the Latino population's college population is expected to grow.
