College of Santa Fe back on track for the fall.

The Santa Fe City Council yesterday voted unanimously to take on $30 million in debt to buy the College of Santa Fe campus and lease it to Laureate Education Inc. Whew. It would have been extremely foolish for the city to let go of the richly storied CSF. The name "College of Santa Fe" will have to stay in place, according to the agreement, but the agreement notes that Laureate can "add other words." We suggest: "We Woulda Been Dumb as Rocks if We Let This Good and Fabulously Situated College Disappear From Santa Fe But Boy We Came Close." Here's a link to the Fall 2009 course list at the College. State residents will get a 20 percent tuition discount; Santa Fe county residents will receive a 25 percent discount.
