Observations
Observations

  • Total volume of charges has declined by 58.4% (compared to 27.4% decline system-wide)

  • Volume of discharge predictably mirrors charges

  • Decline due in part to large volume of transfer to ReCAP

  • Noticeably sharper decline for graduates students than other patron groups
