Winterim Enrollment Up|
At UW-Eau Claire
MAILED: Jan. 7, 1999|
Enrollment in the 1999 Winterim session is up 46 percent from the 1998 session at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
There are 908 students enrolled in the 1999 three-week session, which runs Jan. 4-22. In 1998, 622 students took Winterim classes.
"I am very pleased to see so many students taking advantage of this wonderful opportunity to take a step ahead in their degree completion," said Jan Morse, administrative officer in academic affairs. "Winterim enrollment has exceeded our expectations."
Art, kinesiology, economics, women's studies and management are just a few of the departments that are offering courses some for the first time this January during UW-Eau Claire's fourth Winterim session.
Students are enrolled in 34 courses in a variety of disciplines, with most Winterim classes meeting every weekday for three hours. Despite the increase in enrollment, class sizes are still relatively small, giving students the attention they need during a three-week intensive course, Morse said.
Students who enroll in Winterim typically want to be on a track that would allow them to graduate earlier than they otherwise could or are behind in their efforts to earn a degree and they are trying to catch up, Morse said.
