Students staying at school up to 89 percent

From dailyherald.com:

Western Illinois University has received an award for increasing its student retention rate.

University officials say they were honored at a July 9 national conference on student recruitment, marketing and retention by education consulting firm Noel-Levitz.

Officials say the retention rate of students between fall 2013 and spring 2014 improved to over 89 percent, up from 82 percent last year.
