The Numbers Game

UM-Flint enrollment hits 8,138.


  1. You might as well change the name of the city while you're at it. Any suggestions?

  2. How about, New Horizon, Michigan.

  3. This is good news. I got really tired of the arrogance of graduates of other universities who were constantly bashing UM-Flint and telling me about their declining enrollment. The high tuition and housing cost at other universities may be catching up with them.


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
