For years, for-profit universities have offered in-person classes at campus locations to supplement their online curricula. But with in-person enrollments dwindling, some institutions are rethinking the role these places play.
Strayer University did just that. With free-flowing coffee and sleek modern furnishings in an open-concept space, Strayer's new location in Killeen, Texas, looks more like a high-end co-working space than a typical university outpost.
And in many ways it is. The space is the 20th “hybrid campus” Strayer has opened in the past two years, with more locations like it on the way.
