The athletic department at Lon Morris College has been shut down following a closed door meeting with school executives Tuesday night.

Multiple reports indicate the closure will affect hundreds of students and faculty.

The college located in Jacksonville has been plagued with financial problems for the past year and school officials recently were forced to shut down summer classes and staff members were terminated, at least temporarily.

The President of Lon Morris College, Dr. Miles McCall resigned in May.

A press release detailing the future of the college will be released later today.
