Student enrollment in the College of Agriculture at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln declined 22% from academic years 1980-81 to 1985-86 (1). At the same time the number of students majoring in Animal Science declined 10% (2). Current projections indicate that no major reversal of the decline in student enrollment at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, can be expected at least through 1995 (3). These trends warrant an investigation of College of Agriculture students and recruitment methods at the University of Nebraska in an attempt to partially circumvent declining student enrollment.
