Mount Ida College officially closed today. A Newton institution for the last 119 years, thousands of students were a part of its many programs throughout that period.
Since 2015, NewTV partnered with Mt. Ida to provide a real-world facility for learning. Mustang Media was a half-hour television program produced by studio production students, giving insights about issues facing the millennial generation.
Three programs were produced this spring, the first to be released features an interview with the Provost of Mt. Ida, Ron Ackie as he reflects on his tenure and the state of small colleges; “We are losing something very special”.
