EWC expanding its evening courses for spring semester

Posted: Updated:

More non-traditional students are enrolling at colleges across the country; prompting one KOTA Territory learning institution to better cater to their needs.

Over the past few years, Eastern Wyoming College has looked at expanding its general education courses that students need to complete their degrees.

However, many non-traditional students work full-time and can only take classes in the evening.

"The evening enrollment has varied over the years," explains Dr. Dee Ludwig, Vice President of Learning. "But in years past- and we're talking maybe 10 years ago or so- we had good evening enrollment. And we're trying to recapture that and bring it back."

Starting this semester, E.W.C. is offering significantly more night classes at its Torrington campus.

Although online classes *are* available, Associate Vice President for Outreach & Learning Mike Durfee says many students prefer the traditional classroom setting. "Some people prefer the night classes because they like being involved in a classroom with an instructor and with the other students that are in that class."

A complete schedule of all evening courses offered at www.ewc.wy.edu or by stopping in at the student services office.
