As students return to the hill more money is pumped into the regions economy.

This years students are expected to bring in as much as $137.5 million from off campus purchases like food, housing and other personal items.

There are two reasons students are expected to bring in so much money for the area. One is inflation and the second is enrollment.

In fact, Western's enrollment is even expected to exceed 18,000 students this fall.
