Lewis to Close Shorewood Campus

Lewis University will close its Shorewood campus, 247 Brookforest Ave., at the end of the fall semester, according to the Herald-News.

With the lease expiring at the end of the year and the availability of the renovated St. Charles Borromeo Center building, the university said the campus is no longer needed, the paper reported.

Classes and resources from the Shorewood campus will be moved to the main campus in Romeoville.

The Shorewood location is home to adult accelerated undergraduate programs including nursing, professional studies, business administration, paralegal studies and management.

Along with its home base in Romeoville, Lewis has campuses in Chicago, Hickory Hills, Oak Brook, Tinley Park and Albuquerque, New Mexico, as well as offering online studies.

Low enrollment......... sign of the times.

On the contrary... due to the increased enrollment numbers they purchased a 140,000 sq. ft. building in Romeoville which negates the need to rent a 8,000 sq. ft. building for a satellite location 10 miles away.

The thing is super small. I would say it's more a space issue. The police must hold classes or meetings there too.

The only time I saw cars there was for some type of cop meeting because there were a lot of cop cars in the parking lot- maybe a donut judging contest?
