Decision was made today. There is suppose to be an "announcement" in the paper but this is an early notice.

Patterson use to be a private Military School. Not sure if it still operating as a school now.

How do you successfully get to their website? I tried and it appears as the site has been hijacked by another user.

The admission process leaves something to be desired from reading the website. Any college especially a Christian College usually are all for people applying and improving themselves. From reading the admission process if you have a record you would be wasting your time.

What this area needs is an accredited campus for a college geared completely toward those aged 35 and over who are looking to get or complete a college degree. No one under 25 allowed to apply or be on campus. The old Patterson School on 268 in Happy Valley would be great.

When was the decision to close made or an announcement? I haven't heard or seen anything except from this thread.

More people should talk about this. It was in your own county. Shouldn't you have you're own opinion or is that just a myth?

Well you can draw your own conclusion. Find out the President from the website.

Well usually hard headed people will not listen to others because they assume that thier point of view is the right way.

Let me just say I knew what was going to happen before it happened but because of hard headed people no one would have listened.

MYM were you a student there? You sound angry about the closing of the college.

Well seeing it would have been unaccredited the degree wouldn't have been worth the paper it was printed on.

Wow, that's a shame. I know someone who is enrolled there. She's been quite excited about finishing her education there.

Is this the place that took over the old Wilkes Central/Woodward School?

The students are very screwed.

They were lying about accreditation, they actually said it would take a year longer at the end of last semester. Seems someone wasn't paying attention.

My husband wanted to go there. I was very skeptical because they were not accredited. He went and spoke with them and they assured him they would be accredited soon. I am so thankful he decided to go elsewhere.
