More Troubles for Myers University

Posted By on Fri, May 4, 2007 at 1:00 PM

Don’t be surprised sometime next week if you hear that Myers University, Cleveland’s 150-year-old business college that counts John D. Rockefeller among its alumni, will close or be bought out. The school won’t talk, except to confirm that it is canceling next season’s sports on account that they suck (and are losing money). But according to students, President Dick Scaldini told them this week that one of these two things was likely to happen, because the school’s finances look a lot like mine: lots of crumpled up receipts for shit it didn’t need to buy and very few deposit slips. To learn more about how Myers ran itself into the ground, check out the February story “Mired University.” -- Joe P. Tone
