MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Enrollment at University of Wisconsin campuses across the state dropped nearly 2% overall and even more for first-year students amid the coronavirus pandemic that forced most classes online, the system reported on Thursday.

The flagship Madison campus saw enrollment grow by 1.1%. The only other campuses with enrollment increases were Green Bay (2%) and Parkside (1%).
