Bowling and Billiards Trends
At St. Cloud State we are currently undergoing a strategic program appraisal
for the division. We have been monitoring our usage for bowling V.S. billiards.
Currently we are trending towards bowling usage; whereas, billiards used to be
more popular. I am wondering what you see the future 5 year trend heading.
Billiards or Bowling? Any observations would be appreciated.
