The University of Missouri’s enrolment rate has plummeted, reportedly prompting the school to shut down several dorms.
According to The College Fix, Mizzou – the same school that attempted to silence reporters who covered social justice warrior stupidity – is shutting down three dorms until enrollment pops back up.
The College Fix further reports that this brings the total number of dorms closing at Mizzou to 7.
According to an ABC17 report, Mizzou’s enrollment has dropped thousands, even more than expected by school administrators. ABC17 is also reporting a 2% drop in retention rates, showing that more students from last year have left the university.
Many are linking Mizzou’s choices to virtue signal as the reason they may be seeing these drops in enrollment. In fact, Mizzou even considered evaluating professors on their commitment to SJW values. Now they’re paying the price, showing once again that social justice virtue signaling never pays.

He has also announced a new, more intensive effort to recruit potential Mizzou students by phone, email, and even via Skype.
The Daily Caller cited Chancellor Hank Foley last month of expecting only a 1,500 student deficit which would cause budget cutbacks, but they lost over 2,000…
