Save! Chester College: Silent Auction will feature The Best of Chester in an art show, where services and art will be available for auction. Created by students, alumni, and faculty, the art will range from paintings and photographs to professors' published books and graphic design hours, and much more! All proceeds will directly benefit Chester College of New England in an effort to keep the school open. A turn of events has left the college in a severe deficit and we need to raise $500,000 to $900,000 by May 9 in order to keep the college open. This is a one-time occurrence and once Chester College of New England receives this money, the college will stay open indefinitely. President Robert Baines is quoted in a memo as saying, “Vigorous recruiting for the next class continues and deposits are due May 1. After that date, the Board of Trustees will review the situation. We expect a significant increase in the number of deposits.” Curious how much we've raised? Visit http://savechester.marginaliastudios.com/ for more info.
