The future of Morris Brown College will be the subject of a bankruptcy court hearing this week.
The historically black Atlanta college filed for bankruptcy protection late last month. The filing delayed foreclosure proceedings scheduled for this week, but the fast-moving events left questions about plans by the nearby Interdenominational Theological Center to use a Morris Brown student building for classes this fall.
The presidents of the two schools would not speak on camera to FOX 5.
Morehouse College student Jonathan Kilson said he and many others hope for Morris Brown's survival.
"We just hope that Morris Brown can come back to where it was about 10 or 15 years ago because it was a great school in this community and it made us all seem like were all a family when it was here," said Kilson
An attorney for Morris Brown said a bankruptcy court hearing is scheduled for Thursday. The lawyer said that the school hopes to reach an agreement with bondholders and find a way to put its financial house in order.
