Humboldt State Considers Cuts
Humboldt State University, a Division II school in California, is considering dropping some sports. The school is trimming its budget to make up for low enrollment, and the athletics department has been asked to save $170,000. Women are already underrepresented among HSU athletes (receiving 49% of the athletic opportunities while making up 54% of the student body) so men's teams will likely bear the brunt of any cuts.
