The moment Ricardo Neco stepped outside his home and saw what Hurricane Maria did to his neighborhood, he started planning how to get out of Puerto Rico.  The 19-year-old booked a $140 flight to Orlando with plans to stay with a friend.

King University Cuts Full-Time Faculty Positions

King University Cuts Full-Time Faculty Positions

October 30, 2017

King University in Tennessee plans to cut more than a dozen jobs, including nine full-time faculty positions at the Bristol campus and two at the Knoxville campus, the Bristol Herald Courier reported.  The private university blames the decision on enrollment numbers, which have dropped from about 2,800 to in 2016-17 to 2,100 this academic year. It attributed that drop to declining enrollment in community colleges, from which many students enroll in King, and the economy over all.
