Wartburg College's "concerns about debt" in Chronicle of Higher Education
The article reports that the college has carried $88 million in debt since 2005.
"Yes, we have high debt," William E. Hamm, interim president, told the Chronicle. "A riskier position to be in, frankly, is to have insufficient enrollment" or inadequate facilities.
The article also mentions a 1,000-student protest against a range of greivances, including higher tuition. The March 25 protest took place on "Outfly" day (previously set aside for community service), and was covered by the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier.
