Campus craze

Colleges brace for big influx of students


This fall marks the second year for the college’s new president, D. Michael Lindsay, and the 50th year for Marvin Wilson, biblical studies professor, author and scholar in the area of Jewish-Christian relations.

Enrollment at Montserrat College of Art is up to about 400 students, close to its all-time high, officials said. About two-thirds of the students live in on-campus housing near the downtown Beverly campus.

Classes begin at Gordon College tomorrow; at Montserrat on Friday; at Endicott on Tuesday, Sept. 4; and at Salem State on Wednesday, Sept. 5.
