Another sad story caused by the higher ed bubble.

The Washington Post reports.

She got into her first-choice college. Then found out on Facebook it was closing.

Amelia Currin, a 17-year-old from rural North Carolina, survived all the stress of the college-admissions process — or so she thought. She writes about how she found out that the president of Sweet Briar College, the small private women’s college in Virginia she expected to attend in the fall, announced the school would shut down forever this summer. And while she now knows alumnae are fighting to save the 114-year-old college, she has a problem: Where will she go to school this fall? Amelia tells her story:

“This past Tuesday I returned from school around 3 in the afternoon, plowed through my usual rituals: fed my horses, took the dog out, and sat down to catch-up on my social media accounts. That’s when the life and future I had been working so hard to construct crumbled with just a tap of my finger:

“It’s so sad, Sweet Briar College is closing,” the first post read.

It sounded ridiculous.

This was the school that I would be attending in the fall.
