Mount Washington College Closing Two N.H. Campuses
Mount Washington College in New Hampshire says it will close its Salem and Nashua campuses and lay off 50 employees by Sept. 9.
The Eagle Tribune reports college spokesman Stephen White said about 540 students would be affected. They will be able to continue their studies at the college's campus in Manchester.
He said the decision was prompted by a 30 percent decline in enrollment over the last few years and a move to focus more on its online programs. A year ago, Mount Washington closed its campuses in Portsmouth and Concord.
The college, formerly known as Hesser College, was founded in 1900. It changed its name to Mount Washington last year.
