The Wilson College Board of Trustees is set to meet today to vote on recommendations to help improve enrollment at the Chambersburg, Franklin County school, which includes a proposal to start admitting male students at the beginning of the fall 2013 semester.

A group of students and alumnae say they plan to protest the proposal.

A final vote could be tallied as early as this afternoon.

The school has an enrollment of about 700 students and has run a budget deficit for three of its last four years.
