As we reported earlier, the Virginia College Greenville and Spartanburg campuses will close their doors this month.

Prior to the school’s closing, Virginia College lost a key accreditation over financial concerns according to the school’s website  and the AP reports the parent company owes nearly 47 million dollars to creditors and several campuses are appealing to landlords to stop eviction proceedings.

What does this mean for the Virginia College student left holding the bag?

That’s Christine Jenkins who was in her third year with honors at the Greenville campus of Virginia College and all nearly 20,000 nationwide students received an email that the school would be closing, but Christine didn’t get the email.

Christine blames corporate greed and bad upper management for the school’s closing but she said staff at the Greenville campus went above and beyond.

And as for all the years of work and nearly 40,000 invested.

The Greenville and Spartanburg campus is set to close December 19th.
