(Moab-AP) -- The College of Eastern Utah has decided to close its Moab campus.

C-E-U President Ryan Thomas says he doesn't like the decision, but he had no choice. The Moab campus of the Price-based school has been losing more than 100-thousand dollars per year.

Plus, the Legislature cut two (M)million dollars from the college's 13 (M)million budget last year.

Sharon Northrup, director of the Moab campus, says community activists had raised 45-thousand dollars to help fund scholarships, and enrollments now are as high as they've ever been. But it wasn't enough to save the campus from its financial troubles.

The campus will shut down May 15.
