St. Joe's has a $293 million endowment and they're publicly shopping for a merger.

Is that still the USciences deal? That has some strategic advantages. Siena is positioned as a mostly undergrad liberal arts college. They could merge with the struggling St. Rose if they want, which would give them some postgrad education credentials if nothing else, but there isn’t quite the same synergy other than their Catholic traditions.

The Philly region has seen its share of mergers and acqusitions over the past few decades. Everything from Drexel-Hahnemann, Rutgers-UMDNJ (and the residual gains by Rowan), Rowan and the restructuring of NJ community colleges, Penn gobbling up hospitals, and Penn State aching for space in the area, that big Jefferson-PhillyU thing really pushed this one along. It’s almost a culture favorable toward it locally.

I didn’t get the impression Saint Joe’s was in a bad spot. They just want to keep up.

Honestly, it wouldn’t surprise if Villanova eventually jumps in somewhere. They’re just building up over there.

D2 Bridgeport will be no more as Hartford is taking part of the school and a community college taken up another part, and they sold their former football stadium that they hold soccor to the high school next door. No word if Hartford plans on letting Bridgeport to continue sports there.

The Claremont Colleges are a 5 college consortium—they were always one institution.

it's something called Goodwin University, not Hartford, and yes athletics will stay. It's possible they will change the athletics name from Bridgeport to Goodwin, but that seems to be undecided as of now.

My bad. It was supposed to be Sacred Heart University, but now I see they backed out oif the merger in October. It was supposed to be three schools to aquired parts of the campus. Goodwin and Sacred Heart are 2. Goodwin was for profit before they went to not for profit in 2004. Goodwin dows not have any sports, and are not in any orginations like the NCAA or NAIA.
