Tweet Though I haven’t posted much this summer, we’ve actually been rather busy in behind-the-scenes work on fall courses, orientation, first-year seminars, and even a possible fall event or two.

Tweet Changes to the ExCollege staff, changes to our course listing, changes in the weather…we’re just full of changes over here.
