- Furthering your education might seem impossible to add to your already busy life. Nicolet College is trying to make it easier for adults to make it possible. The college now offers EVENING courses that are a combination of classroom and ONLINE classes."They get both the benefits of online learning as well as some face to face contact with their instructor," says Rose Prunty, Dean of University Transfer Liberal Arts.The classes meet one night a week and the rest is online. These hybrid courses are designed to make education an option for busy adults.
"This is really to meet the needs of community members who maybe work during the day, who have all sorts of commitments during the day. So this flexibility allows students to adapt a schedule that works for them," said Prunty.There are more than 50 hybrid courses being offered this fall. Classes range from business, criminal justice, and culinary studies."I think it's a way of getting a start. Taking one course and seeing what college is like," says Prunty.Class begins August 26th. Registration is open now through the start of classes. The courses will also be offered at the Lakeland Campus.
