Ridgewater announces closure of computer art and publishing program

WILLMAR - Ridgewater College has announced the closure of its computer art and publishing program.

The program will close at the end of this school year, and second-year students will be able to graduate in the spring.

The school is helping first-year students explore their options for next year.

The program is a victim of budget cuts and low enrollment. The school will lose one full-time faculty member as a result of the closing.

Read more about the closing in Thursday's West Central Tribune.
