session participation continues to increase
Undergraduate enrollment for the first three weeks of summer
session at UW-Eau Claire already has surpassed last year's total
for the whole summer, continuing a trend toward greater
participation in summer classes.
"We won't have final figures until
late August," said Kay Magadance, senior policy and planning
analyst at UW-Eau Claire, "but we already have 2,282
undergraduates enrolled, and last year the total was 2,196 for the
whole summer. There was a period of lower interest starting around
1995, but for the past several years we've again seen a steady
Summer session courses are most popular
with the more than 1,600 junior and seniors attending them, but
more than 450 freshmen and sophomores also are taking advantage of
them this summer, along with almost 300 graduate students and 210
special (non-degree seeking) students. Enrollment will continue to
increase throughout the summer according to Jan Morse,
administrative officer and director of summer session.
Morse believes there are several reasons
why summer session classes are increasingly popular. "We
always try to offer something for everyone; we're very concerned
with meeting the educational needs of students. In addition, we
are continuing to add to our online course offerings, which allow
more access to a wider audience. Summer session is an exciting
educational experience because students are able to immerse
themselves in just one subject for several hours each day, rather
than the four or five courses typically taken during the fall and
spring semesters. This can provide a very worthwhile experience
for our summer students," Morse said.
Students were able to choose from more
than 200 classroom-based and 20 online courses during this year's
three- and eight-week summer sessions. The three-week session
ended June 7, and the eight-week session, which began June 10,
will end Aug 2. A separate four-week session will begin July 8.
Students still may register for courses by calling the
