Despite continuously rising enrollment since its establishment in 1984, Towson State University's Columbia campus will be dismantled at the end of this year's spring semester due to state budget cutbacks.
All credit and non-credit classes scheduled for the spring 1991 semester will be offered as planned, said Norma Long, dean of the College of Continuing Studies at Towson State University.
Courses previously offered at the Columbia campus will be available to students at the Towson campus.
"It will just be less convenient for the Howard County student," she said.
In its seven years of existence, the Columbia campus has served over 10,000 students.
"After 1992, the state higher education institutions will be on a path to recovery," Long said.
"We will begin to look outward again. Iwould not say we have definite plans to return to Columbia, but I wouldn't rule it out."
