Branch campuses showcase offerings

March 11, 2007

KALAMAZOO--Open houses and information sessions are set to take place at Western Michigan University's branch campuses around the state as WMU's Extended University Programs unit prepares to showcase its offerings for the communities it serves.

Throughout the spring semester, EUP offers potential students numerous ways to learn about local program offerings through campus open houses and information sessions. With eight campus locations, in addition to the main campus in Kalamazoo, opportunities abound for students interested in continuing their education.

When available, the scheduled open houses and information sessions will be supported by faculty and advisors, as well as staff from career services, University Libraries, financial aid, and the host branch campus. Information presented will be tailored toward working adult students.

"We are excited to showcase our branch campus offerings to anyone who has been thinking about going back to school or continuing their education," says Dr. Darrell Johnson, dean of WMU's Extended University Programs. "We've tailored the programs to working adults by offering courses that fit their busy schedules at campuses close to where they live and work. We understand that working and completing a degree can be hard, so we seek to ease that burden. We invite interested students to explore what our branch campuses offer. This is a great opportunity to find a program that will advance your career or get you started in one."

The full schedule of open houses and information sessions follows. Open house details and campus directions can be found at www.eup.wmich.edu.
