Kuyper College Eliminates Athletics

March 18, 2015

Kuyper College, a small Christian institution in Michigan, is eliminating its intercollegiate athletics program, MLive reported. The college is a member of the National Christian College Athletic Association, and will by June eliminate its six teams: men's and women's basketball, men's and women's cross-country, men's soccer, and women's volleyball. Officials said that they were focused on "alignment" of programs with the mission at a time of declining enrollment. The college has 245 students this year, down from 261 a year ago.
