KALAMAZOO -- Students planning to go to graduate school can get a head start on getting ready for their entrance examinations by taking a preparation course at Western Michigan University.

The courses, sponsored by the Office of Professional Programs and Conferences, will be offered from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. over four consecutive Saturdays in October. The classes will meet in Sangren Hall.
