Faculty members knew Marian Court College was on the brink of
closure, but they didn’t quite expect the 50-year-old institution to
shutter so soon.
The announcement came exactly one month after the governor of
Massachusetts addressed graduates during commencement in a speech the
college described as full of “hope and optimism.” But in the month
since, initial fall 2015 enrollment numbers appeared weak and the
college couldn’t find financing to keep it afloat for another year.
The tiny Catholic college on the coast of New England, about 15 miles from Boston, announced Monday that it will close its doors at the end of the month due to insurmountable financial challenges.
