St. Joe Campus added to Indiana Endangered Historical Sites List
The college, which closed at the end of the 2016-2017 academic year, left the campus with tens of millions of dollars in deferred maintenance.
According to the college’s website, it is exploring options to reopen. In April, the board approved a proposal to “adopt the model of a two-year program with partner institutions as the most feasible way to continue the mission of educating students as a first step to bring Saint Joseph’s College back into operation.”
A quote from the South Bend Tribune stated “The college campus on the list is Saint Joseph’s College in Rensselaer, Ind. The college closed in 2017. Many of the 35 buildings on campus are eligible for the National Register of Historic Places, but suffered deterioration even before the closure, with an estimated $35 million in deferred maintenance, according to the agency.”
