Another small, liberal arts college reimagines itself

And shrinks significantly. I'm not sure a college with such limited offerings can long survive. I'd be updating my vita. From WJHL.com.

Aquinas College in Nashville says it will only offer degrees in education starting this fall, leading to faculty cuts and forcing students to transfer. 
Media outlets report that the Roman Catholic college announced Friday it will no longer offer degrees in arts and sciences, business and nursing. The school also will stop providing residential housing and student life activities in the fall. 
School officials said the cuts are tied to challenges with funding and enrollment. About 60 of the college’s 76 employees will lose their jobs, while up to 140 of its 257 students will have finish their degrees somewhere else.
