(WBNG Binghamton) Broome Community College President Dr. Kevin Drumm on Wednesday released enrollment statistics for second year of the College’s Winter Session, which runs January 2nd – 23rd, 2013.
According to a news release:
The 2012 Winter Session had 110 students enrolled while the 2013 Winter Session has 262 students enrolled. This equates to a 138% increase in enrollment in 1 year.
The college also increased the total number of courses offered with 14 in 2012 and 24 in 2013, a 71% increase. The College also increased the number of fully online courses offered from 4 in 2012 to 11 in 2013, a 175% increase. These numbers apply to the Winter Session only.
“We’ve had a very encouraging response from current students and community members who are taking classes during our Winter Term,” said Dr. Drumm: “By providing more flexible learning options our goal is to make education as accessible as possible through offering a variety of scheduling options. We are already looking at expanding our on campus and on-line offerings for future academic terms outside the usual fall and spring terms.”
The 2013 Winter Session provided students an opportunity to take a trip to the Everglades and learn about natural disasters, the hospitality industry, Psychology, and much more. The session allows members of the community and students to lighten course load for the spring semester, make up a class, refine skills, or just learn something fun over the winter break.
