  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Number of online classes offered drop this summer; remain diverse

With summer quickly approaching, many students are trying to schedule some extra classes for the summer semester to either catch up or get ahead in school.

That being said, many new and different classes are being offered for the summer online this year.

Many students, like sophomore Haley Wagner, enjoy taking online classes for different reasons.

“I like online classes because they give me more free time to do my homework and study then actually going and sitting in class,” Wagner said. “It’s nice to be able to get your work done from my bed if I’m not feeling well or want to sleep in.”

While the actual number of online classes offered may be going down, the diversity is going up.

Doctoral student Nicole Reamer will be instructing a new class that can be counted toward Women’s Studies and ACS credits.

“I actually had no idea there was any change in the number of classes being offered; to my knowledge it is not significant,” Reamer said. “It actually seems like more classes are being offered. There’s a lot more diversity and I think we’re allowing for a lot of opportunity this year.”

Reamer will be instructing a class that will cover gender and culture in video games, a class that she designed and created herself.

“I’m really excited that they’re letting me do this this year,” Reamer said. “I’ve never taught this course before and I think it’ll be something different for students to take. It’s filling up fast.”

Vice Provost for Academic Operations and Assessment Joseph Frizado assures students that the changes to the online summer classes will be beneficial to their academics.

“There are 13 more courses and 19 more sections being offered this summer than last,” Frizado said in an email. “While some of the classes have been taken away, they have been replaced.”

Additionally, Frizado urges students who are thinking about taking classes this summer to begin registration.

“This is not like the academic year; enrollment close to the start of the summer puts the course in jeopardy of not being offered at all,” Frizado said.

In order to ensure that students can have the diverse classes that will be offered this summer, students must register soon.
