Community Invited to Register for
Summer Session at UW-Eau Claire

RELEASED: Feb. 9, 2007

Summer Session logoEAU CLAIRE — Registration for the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Summer Session 2007 began Feb. 8. Community members are invited to explore the wealth of educational opportunities offered at UW-Eau Claire when open registration begins Feb. 23.

"We always try to offer something for everyone during summer session, and this year is no exception," said Janice Morse, administrative officer for Academic Affairs. "There are approximately 200 undergraduate and graduate courses to choose from this summer, including 55 Web-based courses to help meet the needs of people who find it difficult to come to campus."

The online courses are designed to be appealing both to working adults who are trying to fit classes into already busy schedules and to traditional-age students who want to earn credits while traveling or working at home during the summer. A variety of courses are being offered by the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Business, the College of Nursing and Health Sciences and the College of Education and Human Sciences. For more information about these online courses, check the Web.

Summer Session 2007 also offers approximately 150 on-campus courses that range from the study of modern American youth gangs to Spanish for health professionals to environmental geology. In addition, students may earn credits at off-campus locations, studying, for example, biology at the Pigeon Lake Field Station in Chequamegon National Forest in Northern Wisconsin; geologic features and processes in the Rocky Mountains; or marine biology and geology at the Gulf Coast Research Lab in Ocean Springs, Miss.

Area educators can take advantage of the more than 40 courses specifically designed to meet their needs. And, students at UW System institutions who come home to the Chippewa Valley for the summer are encouraged to check out the Summer Session offerings.

Summer Session participants also may take advantage of the numerous recreational opportunities in the area by renting a wide variety of outdoor equipment available at UW-Eau Claire's Hilltop Center, or participating in some of the free-time recreation and fitness center activities offered throughout the summer.

The three-week Summer Session will run May 21-June 8, and the eight-week session will run June 11-Aug. 3.

For descriptions, times and dates for all Summer Session classes, including online courses, visit UW-Eau Claire's Web site or call Registration and Scheduling at 715-836-2425.
