Ohio State and enrollment data

Today I received The Office of Student Academic Success of Ohio State the 2021 Enrollment Report. I doubt that having Trump as their president made any difference at a state school, but the class of Trump 2020-2021 certain broke all the records. Those of you not familiar with Ohio State, the total enrollment for all campuses is 67,772. 71% of that enrollment is in just 3 areas, arts and sciences, business, and engineering and architecture. I thought it was going to be a report on academic success, given the name of the office, but it primarily focuses on minority enrollment and retention of the freshman class, and that is excellent. Also the highest record for minorities for the Trump class, I might add. That said, college retention is difficult if they aren't getting a good high school preparation, and 69.1% are Ohio residents. That said, the male/female ratio is not looking good, but I think that is happening all over the country. 46/54. For 50 years there has been a push to improve the chances of the women, and perhaps at the expense of the men. Now the trans movement can make it worse if all those gender dysphoric males are counted as females.

Incidentally, J.D. Vance, venture capitalist and author, graduated from Ohio State after getting a kick in the pants in the Marines and the Iraq War, then went on to graduate with a law degree from Yale. He's now running for Senate. If anyone knows American life from the ground up, it is Vance. Read his book, "Hillbilly Elegy."
