CCV in the News (Part 4)

Here are a few more local news stories that appeared this week regarding CCV's purchase of the Woodbury College campus.

1. Today's Times-Argus editorial takes the form of thumbs-up/thumbs-down
week in review. This morning’s editorial includes CCV’s return to Montpelier as a thumbs up item. Click here for the entire article.

“Good news this week that the Community College of Vermont will purchase the Woodbury College campus on Elm Street and move more than 30 administrative jobs back to Montpelier. It was disconcerting to learn of Woodbury's plans to merge with Champlain College and essentially move to Burlington, not only because of worries the building would sit empty, but also because of the loss of an important higher education component of Montpelier's economy and student opportunity. Moving CCV's administration and eventually its classes into the Elm Street campus guarantees a good use of the Woodbury facility that will benefit the central Vermont region. This is a return home for CCV, which had been headquartered in Montpelier until moving to Waterbury in 1985. Welcome back.”
