Olivet University intends to open a campus in former psychiatric center, but some have concerns about the university's founder.

Olivet University, a small evangelical Christian college of about 250 undergraduates based in San Francisco, has plans to open a campus in buildings that once housed a psychiatric center in Wingfield, N.Y. The New York Times reports that the town's residents are pleased that the buildings, which have been vacant for nearly 20 years, will be renovated, but some have raised concerns about reports that the university's founder may have links to the Unification Church and the Rev. Sun Myung Moon.
