What will happen to the adventure with the closing?

Will this game become freeplay or something entirely?

From Seppel's post about his future plans:
Seppel wrote:As we sell out of physical product, the Furoticon.com website will remain up for as long as digital items support the minimal server costs.
So College Adventures should still be available to play as long as there's anyone buying in-game items for it. (Also, in case you haven't seen this yet, there are other buyable in-game items besides fast forwards, although they are not necessary to progress.)

Also, this quote

5) A few odds and ends. And maybe a pleasant surprise or two.
could be interpreted as implying that more digital items might be made available, although I wouldn't take that as a guarantee or anything.

To elaborate on this, when you manage to find the purchasable in-game items, leaving the room you found them in will not use up your day--you will go back to the beginning of the area you found them in. (At least, I have found this to be the case in the Strawberry Adventure.)

In-game purchases have already raised enough cash to keep the website running for another three years, so College Adventure will be up for quite a while. :)

The monthly server costs are pretty small. Like less than $20.

I recently bought the infinite fast forwards, with that cost in mind, if anyone else does the same that alone would keep the servers up for a long time.

Yes and no. There's going to be one last low-budget set, possibly followed up with a surprise or two. :)
