With more students streaming classes online, school plans to sell campus and find smaller facility - TIM FUNK, Charlotte Observer

With a majority of its students now taking classes online rather than on-site, Southern Evangelical Seminary is selling its 10.7-acre campus in Matthews and plans to move into a smaller facility next year. Seminary president Richard Land said that when he came to the school four years ago, 60 percent of its students attended classes at the Matthews site and 40 percent took classes online. Now, he said, those percentages have been reversed: Of the 237 students who were enrolled in 2016-17, about 60 percent of them were online. Most of the seminary’s classes are conducted on the campus at night – between 6 and 10 p.m., Land said. And three-fourths of the seminary’s online students stream those classes in real time. http://www.charlotteobserver.com/living/religion/article164354757.html
