It's too bad that they may eliminate this program. It was a godsend for many who couldn't finish any other way.

The program should have been closed down 10 years ago. It's a giant black hole in Skidmore's budget and sucks money away from needed improvements and new programming for the on-campus or commuting Skidmore student.

Also, Skidmore is expensive as hell and in this economy I doubt many adults, who may not qualify for financial aid grants, can afford to attend paying out of their own pocket.

You can't sacrifice an affordable education for the mainstream Skidmore student in order to support a program that drains money from the school

I'm always surprised by academicians who think an instituition should go hundreds of thousands of dollars in the red for programs that look good on a professor's resume
