Wilson College trustees plan to vote today on whether or not to switch to a co-ed institution, fully opening it’s doors to men. The school was founded in 1869 as a liberal arts college for women. Proposing to go co-ed came  after the college continued to face budget deficits and dwindling enrollment over the past three years.

The college enrolls about 700 students and is $31 million in debt.

Currently the school allows men to be students if they are at least 22 years old or are children of staff.

Trustees are expected to announce a decision Saturday afternoon.

Wilson is  only one of 47 women’s colleges in the United States.
