According to a statement released on June 12, 2007 by the Antioch College Board of Trustees, the College in Yellow Springs, Ohio will suspend operations on July 1, 2008. The Trustees announced that the “College’s resources are inadequate” to continue its operations in Yellow Springs.
The statement from the Trustees refers to the College’s “low enrollment and lack of adequate funding.” It refers to all of the cutbacks that the College has made, which have “eroded the confidence students and parents have in the College’s academic program.”
The statement mentions the long-term goal of reopening the campus at some point in the future. However, given the College’s declining enrollment, decrepit facilities, and low endowment, one wonders how the College can resurrect itself, absent a sugar daddy like George Soros.
