Intersession and online courses offer advantages

Would you like to take a class that interests you but doesn't fit into your regular course load? Finish your general education requirements sooner? Lighten your regular semester course load? Get a semester's worth of instruction and earn three credits in just two weeks? Save money?

If you answered “Yes” to any of those questions, consider signing up for a January Intersession course. Grove City College is offering 19 courses between Jan. 8 to 20, and just before the spring semester starts. The intensive courses cover a range of subjects and academic disciplines and offer a number of advantages, including a singular focus on one class, small class sizes and the undivided attention of professors. Intersession courses are only open to Grove City College students.

Classes are held from 9 am to 2 pm, Monday through Saturday with a break for lunch. Housing is available, but if campus is close to home, you can sample the commuter lifestyle and save a couple of hundred dollars. And if all you're doing over winter break is hanging out at your parents' house, why not use that time wisely, complete a class and start the spring semester early?

Registration for intersession courses is open now for seniors. Juniors can begin signing up Nov. 2; sophomores on Nov. 9; and freshman on Nov. 16. Don’t miss your chance to be part of Intersession at Grove City College.
