The College of Wooster is a very old storied college, with deep pockets and many benefactors. The had an endowment of $328.9 million in 2019, for a campus of 2,000 students -- intentionally, they have far more applicants; exclusive by design. Good management, no crazy expansion spending goes on here. Well defined niche.

They will survive. Don't worry about them.

“There are a number of staff whose roles would normally be devoted to supporting hundreds of visitors staying on campus every week for camps and conferences,” Bolton said in an email to employees. “The income from camps and conferences supports those summer staff roles, and the loss of those programs creates an additional fiscal impact for the College.”

If you read the article, it seems like they're employees who help with summer visitors. Since they're not having summer visitors, they're not going to pay those employees. Not a great sign, but I don't think Wooster is in any real danger right now.

You misspelled "Worcester", right?

There can't actually be a college named Wooster ....

Lol Wooster is how the city is spelled in which the college is located.
