    Because of increased enrollment

    Hi,

    Because of increased enrollment in higher education, many adults leave home early, arund the age of eighteen.

    Is 'because of increased enrollment in higher esucation' a phrase? A clause has a subject but it doesn't have. So I think it's a phrase.

    I would say"leave home at an early age"
    I spot three spelling errors.
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    If many do it, why is it early?
