N.J. UNIVERSITY TRIES TO SELL MUSIC SITE
A New Jersey university wants to sell its music college to another institution.
Rider University president Gregory Dell’Omo announced Tuesday that an outside firm has been hired to seek a buyer for the Westminster Choir College and its 23-acre campus in Princeton. He said another option is to sell the school to a buyer who will move the school to its own campus.
The move comes as Rider continues efforts to boost enrollment and faces a potential $13 million shortfall by 2019.
Rider officials had considered moving the 460-student music school to the university’s main campus in Lawrenceville, but supporters say it doesn’t have the necessary facilities.
