    They offer an RN-BSN, MEd and School Health Nurse (6 credit) programs fully online.

    They offer numerous degree-completion programs online as well, with the upper year courses needed to finish. Not sure how revoking their ability to afford degrees will help the financial situation, though.

    That's right, Ford. Until you get your finances in order, you are hereby prohibited from selling cars!

    Yeah, that's gonna work.

    Time to arrange the teach-outs.

    They school has received all kinds of Title IV money, and yet they've run up heat and light bills of $775K and an overdue USDA loan of 27.5 million? Where has the money gone? How about it, Auditors? Accreditors? Officials?

    Alderson Broaddus was placed on probation in 2017 by its accreditor, the Higher Learning Commission.
    The probation was lifted in 2019 although the school remained on notice to continue addressing areas of concern.

    That's right from the article. I read these things. My point: Maybe lifting that probation wasn't the best idea. In any case, it looks to me like the accreditor didn't watch their charge closely enough, after lifting the formal probation.

    I recall seeing their job posts (Fall 2022 and Fall 2023) for a TT Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice. Apparently, they couldn't get anyone to apply for a crappy gig that pays $37,248.00 - $47,903.00 per year.

    If anyone had applied, they'd probably have smelled the fear and bolted, within five minutes of reaching the campus.
    "Spare change, Mister? .... Help an old professor out?" Not a good sign for a job applicant.

    Sure would. I like him, although I don't share his enthusiasm for marijuana. Interesting thing posted by him. Not sure where Snoop got his info on this. I don't think he said. Maybe school records? I dunno. That's where I got mine from, almost 50 years later. I was nearing the deadline - here, they clear them from the system after 50 years.

    Google: "How Smart Is Snoop? According to his post (reposted from the account RapTV Zone), Snoop Dogg has an IQ of 147. It goes on to say that a score of 147 is "thought to be extremely high and that of a gifted genius," and Snoop captioned it with emojis including a shrug"
