Antioch alumni raise $5.3 million for college
(WOUB) - Antioch College alumni say they
raised $5.3 million for the school in a weekend fundraising drive.

Alumni chapters around the country have now raised nearly eight million dollars in an effort to head off the school's plans to temporarily close the college in next July.

School officials want to restructure the school, upgrade facilities and reopen in 2012.

Chancellor Toni Murdock has estimated it will take about $50 million to make the necessary improvements and then operate the school in Yellow Springs near Dayton.

The board of trustees plans a meeting Saturday in Cincinnati to discuss plans.
