Join Us for the Spring Semester
Katharine Eneguess, President of White Mountains Community College
Wow, where did the time go? It seems like just yesterday we were watching our gardens grow, wondering what the fall would bring for harvest.
Since then the leaves have changed color, the ghosts and goblins have come and gone, and we've been to grandmother's house and back for the annual Thanksgiving feast, and now we're busy with the December holidays and welcoming the New Year!
Here at White Mountains Community College we've come to the end of another successful fall semester, which means we are also gearing up for our spring semester. On this account, we do admit to rushing the season just a bit. Our spring classes start in January, a month not known for greening fields or blooming tulips, but it will be spring when the semester ends in May. Of course, we like to think that it is spring at the start of every semester, as our classrooms spring back to life after each semester break.
No matter what it is doing outside, or what month is flipped open on your wall calendar, our spring semester can be a new beginning for you. While we always enjoy welcoming back our already-enrolled students at the start of each semester, we look forward to meeting new students, too.
In the spring, we offer many of the introductory courses you will need to complete degree programs, so it won't matter that you did not start your college career in the fall. At our Berlin campus, we are offering two sections of Introductory English, one of which meets Wednesday evenings from 5 to 7:30 p.m., the other of which meets Tuesday and Thursday morning from 9:25 to 10:40 a.m. There are similar scheduling choices among class sections in our other core academic subjects.
We've got our spring course schedules here on this website, along with information on how to register for classes. You can sign up for classes online, and also apply for admission online, too. If you live outside of the Berlin area and are concerned about winter driving, don't forget to check the courses at our academic centers in Conway, Littleton, and Woodsville.
Don't want to leave the warmth of your seat by the woodstove? Check out our online classes. Each year the number of courses we offer online increases. We have over 25 classes online this spring semester, offering everything from the Principles of Macroeconomics to Mechanical Maintenance of Pumps. As you can for our other classes, you can register right online.
Make sure you take a peek at the listings for our spring semester non-credit courses. The time commitment for these courses varies greatly, as do the topics covered. Ranging from the one-night session of the Puppet Show: Hungry Caterpillar & Forest Folktales, to the 28-session Stick Metal Arc Welding for the Beginner, these courses are well-worth your time and interest.
For these noncredit courses or for our credit courses here at 2020 Riverside Drive in Berlin or our North Country academic centers, call 1-603-752-1113 or 1-800-445-4525 to register or for more information. Best Wishes for a very happy 2011.
