Southwestern College Professional Studies is closing one of three offices in Wichita, located at 3460 N. Ridge Road, college officials said in a statement this week.

Online education has grown so much in recent years that the college decided it no longer needed as many classrooms as it had, said Deb Stockman, a college spokeswoman.

Southwestern College Professional Studies is the adult education section of Southwestern College, based in Winfield, the college said. It will continue to offer classes at its South Rock Road location, at McConnell Air Force Base and at Fort Riley, the statement said.
