Eastern Illinois community college considers cuts

Posted:

Danville -- An eastern Illinois community college is considering suspending three sports and raising tuition as it scrambles for money.

 

Trustees at Danville Area Community College next Tuesday are expected to consider dropping men's golf and soccer and women's volleyball and raising tuition from $98 to $108 an hour.

 

Dave Kietzmann is a school vice president. He said that the school is struggling to put together a budget for the coming school year and needs to make cuts. Revenue is down and the state is late in paying $2.5 million to the school.

 

The cuts would affect 33 students.

 

Beth Winn understands. But she wishes athletes like her soccer-player son Ben could have been given more warning so he could consider other schools.
