MyBB O/T: (maybe) Marygrove closes for undergraduate studies after fall semester
https://www.marygrove.edu/

The obvious reference to EMU is that Marygrove will cease to exist as an undergrad institution after fall September, 2017.

I have to believe that their athletic programs will cease to exist.

So we will not play Marygrove again... This is the box score from the last game between the schools...

Yes.

Marygrove's case is simple to unpack:

Marygrove was a women's Catholic liberal arts college which met that specific need decades ago. Now, Marygrove, as a co-ed Catholic college, is probably indistinguishable from Detroit-Mercy. (I forget but wasn't Mercy also an all women's college?).

Anyway, being a Catholic liberal arts college 'down the road' from Detroit-Mercy is very duplicative.

Seems they would be the weaker and most likely to have to adapt to survive.

As far as sports, I assume Marygrove will have to drop all of the inter-collegiate sports (how does one have them without undergraduate school????).

Yep. Wait for the faux outrage......it's soon to follow, haha.

Too many overpriced, worthless degrees being churned out by too many schools, with a 1.4 TRIiiiiilllllllLLION dollar assist from the Federal student loan bubble.

"In an eerie echo of the housing crisis, debt is already flowing out of the private sector, and into the public. Before 2007, most student loans were underwritten by banks or other private sector financial institutions. Today, 90 per cent of new loans originate with the Department of Education. Socialisation of risk continues to be the way America deals with its debt bubbles."

What is happening is that students have essentially incurred the cost (debt) of a car and down payment on a house and all they have to show for it is a degree (maybe).

I've been on Planet Earth long enough to remember when a college education was dirt cheap and health care expenses (because medical care was much more limited decades ago) wasn't a back breaker like it is today.

Now college education, maybe an uncovered medical expense, college costs, etc. can cost either the student or parents back big, big bucks and unless someone's surname is Romney, etc. it isn't going to be easy.

Marygrove has a beautiful campus.
The other piece of this conversation is that the Livernois corridor through that area is the next "hot area" for development in Detroit.
You see the way that "Midtown" has bounced back? That area will be next.

I'm curious if in time Marygrove will be a 'satellite' campus of Detroit-Mercy???

I doubt the college is sustainable as a graduate school, only.

Madonna a very similar school. Small Catholic liberal arts school. Wonder what this means to them.
