I haven’t blogged all week! What’s happening?
Well it’s been a little crazy around the ExCollege. Let’s see…we are finalizing the Explorations and Perspectives seminars for the fall (see below for a list), getting all of the application information together to make final selections for fall visiting lecturer courses (on our website by May 9), interviewing new Program Assistant candidates, presenting at Admissions Open Houses, helping our current lecturers wrap up their semesters and administer course evaluations, planning for our Faculty-Student Trivia Challenge, and more! Phew. I’ll try to post more next week.
In the meantime, here are the seminars for our two first-year programs — Explorations and Perspectives. If you are an incoming student in the fall and want to take one of these, you’ll have a chance to list it as one of your preferences in an online form in June.
