Conn. School of Broadcasting reopens to students

STRATFORD - For the first time in three weeks, the Connecticut School of Broadcasting reopened its doors to students Monday.

The school closed at the beginning of the month after going bankrupt and closed without prior warning, leaving students hoping to graduate unsure what to do next.

The Connecticut attorney general urged the school to file for bankruptcy relief, in order for the school to reopen.

"I got an e-mail from the campus coordinators Saturday and I was ecstatic when I found out," C.S.B. graduate Christopher Smilie says.

It is uncertain how long the school will remain open, but officials say that they are obligated to help current students complete their classes.
