It closed for three years reopening in 2011 fully independent from the university.  It is known for a featuring a cooperative education work program that is mandatory for all students. It is considered by some to be one of the top non-traditional colleges. The campus is located on the site of a short-lived Owenite (utopian socialist) community.
