UPDATE. Slo-mo whack-a-mole: Disgraced Globe University reappears as Broadview University

For-profit college shut down in Wisconsin is back under new ownership.  (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 8/9/2017)
Buyer beware!  A for-profit college shut down by the Obama administration in December is back in Wisconsin under new ownership, with four locations enrolling new students in career-education programs. 
Globe University had campuses in Eau Claire, La Crosse, Madison, Appleton and Wausau before it was shut down. All but the for-profit college's La Crosse campus will now re-open as Broadview University, the new owner.

The real story:
Globe University closing 4 Twin Cities-area campuses.  (St. Paul Pioneer Press, 5/17/2016)
[Minnesota Attorney General Lori] Swanson’s 2014 lawsuit alleges the two schools intentionally misled students about the value of the schools’ degrees and inflated graduates’ success in the job market. School leaders denied those allegations during a trial that lasted much of April; a judge’s decision is pending. 
Ben Wogsland, a spokesman for Swanson, said enrollment at Globe and the Minnesota School of Business declined significantly in the four years before the attorney general’s lawsuit was filed in 2014. There were similar enrollment losses across the state’s for-profit college sector, he said.

In Wisconsin, the Green Bay campus also closed.
