KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Western Michigan University President Doctor John Dunn says that he has a lot to look forward to as the new semester begins. The university is getting a medical school, the new football coach seems to be well liked, and enrollment this year isn't down by as much as expected.

Dunn tells us that the freshman numbers are actually up, and overall, enrollment this year will be down by about one percent. That's not too bad, considering they'd been projecting a two and a half percent decline.

Dunn is also looking forward to the completion of work being done on East Campus. He says they're tearing down old buildings that no longer have any use, and will soon have a new alumni center in what used to be the East Hall.
