(Chambersburg) -- An all-women's central Pennsylvania college could soon go coed. 


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.
