These numbers, from the Winter 2008 issue, are interesting to me:
29,011: Number of students enrolled in Fall 2008, the highest in Sac State history
2,623: Number of those students who are first-time freshmen.
59: Percentage of students who are female
The first number is fine. The second seems too small a proportion to me. Less than 10%?
The third number highlights a growing problem that begins at home and is exacerbated by our K-12 public education system. If "diversity" is such a big deal in our public universities, I'm compelled to ask: does the Sac State student body "look like" California? I don't think 59% of California is female.
You know what I'm saying, don't you? :-)
