STRATFORD - The Connecticut School of Broadcasting opened its doors Tuesday for the first time after nearly closing for good last spring.

Although the first returning class consists of only six students, which is less than half of its normal size, students say they like the additional attention.

Lesha Bryant says she was originally enrolled in the March class, but when the school closed, she was devastated.

Bryant says she was thrilled when she heard that former owner Dick Robinson bought the school back and was reopening it after updating its facilities and equipment. The number of CSB campuses has been reduced from 28 to 11.
