Gate Count Notes

2018-2019: The front entrance was remodeled in July 2018, and the gates were removed as part of this remodel.  A new people counter was installed in Summer 2019, so there are no gate count statistics for the 2018-2019 year.

2017-2018: The gate count decreased every month this year except December. Enrollment decreased at the University as well.

2016-2017: This is our highest gate count despite decreased enrollment. The biggest difference was a large increase in August traffic. The gate did not malfunction significantly this year, so this year's gate count report is much more reliable than last year.

2015-2016: Our gate count increased despite repeated issues with the gate functionality. We are investigating a new counter method to avoid malfunctions in the future. The months of November, February, and March has large increases over previous years.

2014-2015: This year the gate count decreased, after continual increases for at least 10 years (not counting when the gate malfunctioned). February had the biggest decrease from the previous year, but that was also the month where the university was closed repeatedly due to snow and ice and the gate was malfunctioning for a week.

2013-2014: The gate count has again increased significantly to hit a new all-time high. The months that decreased were July, January, May, and June. These are months where there is either a long break or summer classes, which are much less attended than during fall and spring semesters. All months during those semesters increased, with the largest increases coming in September, October, November, and February.
