|Students return to CentreTerm
RELEASED: Jan. 2, 2003
DANVILLE, KYCentre College students returned from the holiday break Monday. They are taking part in CentreTerm, the College's innovative three-week winter session.
Centre's yearly calendar is based on a "4-1-4" pattern. Typically, one can take four courses each in the 13-week fall and spring terms and one course in the CentreTerm.
In the CentreTerm students can choose new, exciting courses; do research with professors; self-design a course; take part in an internship; or study abroad with one of Centres short-term trips to places like the Bahamas, Fiji, Jamaica and England.
The new term also allows Centre faculty to create their own distinctive courses. This year, Centre offers 20 freshman seminars, as well as 41 courses for upperclassmen.
Interesting courses include, "The World of Duke Ellington" taught by Centre professor and world-renown trumpeter Vince DiMartino; a course on leadership taught by John Roush, the College's president; and a class on how Major League Baseball and the federal government have been linked through the years taught by government professor William Garriott.
CentreTerm ends Jan. 27 and the spring term begins Feb. 5.
