After the spring semester, a college in Illinois will close it doors after 174 years.

With that kind of history, it's very sad to see a school like that shut it's doors. No one will ever be able to have that experience ever again.

According to,

"The chairman of the MacMurray College board of trustees said the four-year liberal arts college in Jacksonville, Illinois will close at the end of the spring semester. Charles O’Connell said there was no viable path forward for the college, citing rising costs and an insufficient endowment as factors."

The school has made arrangements with other institutions so current students can transfer.
