BOSTON (AP) - The Massachusetts Senate has ordered an oversight hearing into the planned purchase by the University of Massachusetts of the assets of Mount Ida College, which plans to close at the end of the current semester.
Senators said Wednesday they were irked that they weren't given any advance notice of the purchase of the 74-acre Newton campus, and questioned the financial wisdom of the deal.
