Chart of Enrollment
Above shows the general population of Centenary College of Louisiana. The NCAA rule for football teams is 63 players at maximum, and 36 on the final travel roster. The amount of student athletes that come to play football will increase the money that the school receives. It is beneficial for the college to increase enrollment in order to grow. The money from tuition of the football team can help in weaker areas around the campus. For example, making upgrades to the residence halls, making new buildings, etc.
This is a graph of our student population under what race everyone is. The numbers in each race will increase substantially with the arrival of the football team.
Football has multiple positives that need to be taken into consideration. Not only will this excite the community, but our students in general. No matter how you feel about the sport, you can't deny the spirit of a Saturday night game.
