TIP SHEET Week of Jan. 13, 2003
Current topics of interest in higher education in western Wisconsin

Story Idea
UW-Eau Claire will be holding a Community Registration Night from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 16, in Schofield Hall for community members interested in continuing their education or returning to school part time as special students. A list of open classes will be available, and university staff will be on hand to help community members enroll in classes for the spring 2003 semester. During economic downturns, demand for higher education services often increases as workers seek additional skills that will enable them to increase their marketability. For more information about Community Registration Night, contact Rita Webb, Adult Opportunity Office, at (715) 836-3259.
