From The Chronicle:

Winston-Salem State University has abandoned its campaign to become an active member of the NCAA’s Division I, electing to remain in Division II for financial reasons.

The unusual announcement came late Friday following a special meeting of the historically black college’s Board of Trustees. In a unanimous vote, the board closed the door on Winston-Salem State’s years-long effort to join the NCAA’s most competitive division.

Yet another sharp reminder of the times.
