Liberty university will keep its Lynchburg campus after paying more than one million dollars in late interest payments to creditors yesterday.

VO-NAT
SUPER=03-Lynchburg;


The cash-strapped university owes about 15-million dollars to investors who bought bonds the school issued in the 19-80's.
Liberty says it withheld interest payments while waiting to hear if another deal to pay a lump sum total of half the debt would be accepted.
But the committees that control the account reportedly never informed the bondholders of the offer.
Over the weekend, those same committees threatened to foreclose on the school unless the interest payments were made.
