Eastern Nazarene College in Quincy said its planned closure will eliminate all 125 jobs, the school disclosed last week in a mandated WARN report.

A small Christian school of just over 500 students, the college said last month that it will cease operations before the end of the year. In its filing to the state regarding the layoffs, Eastern Nazarene said the closure will begin in late August and last through next spring.
