Burlington College announced to students, faculty, and staff on Monday that it will be shuttering its doors in just two weeks, the Burlington Free Press reported.
The school will officially close on May 27.
While the college’s Board of Trustees made the decision unanimously on Friday, there was no mention of the closure at the school’s commencement ceremonies on Saturday, according to the Free Press.
The school celebrated its 35th commencement ceremony on Saturday, with former president and founder Dr. Steward LaCasce as the keynote speaker.
“This is a great loss to the higher ed community,” current President Carol A. Moore said on Monday, according to the Free Press.
The school seems to be in the process of sending out more information. A woman who identified herself as an administrative assistant at Burlington College asked for patience from students in the processing of information
“Please keep in mind that your faculty and staff are also having to process this news and your kindness and patience is appreciated,” she wrote in a Facebook post that has since been deleted.
She also indicated that students will be receiving an email informing them of what will happen next and that faculty advisors will be in touch.
Some students have already expressed their sadness and frustration on Facebook.
Burlington College did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment.
