Per WIBX, after 120 years, the Utica School of Commerce will close December 23rd due to sinking enrollment.
No surprise. Literally around the corner Utica College recently established a business school in the old Woolworth's building. And UC recently reduced its tuition.
Competition can be difficult, but good in the long run for the consumer.
Still, after 120 years and so many graduates in this area, it is sad to see USC go.
For Downtown, two steps forward, one step back.
