Cowley's Golden Tigers to hold spring enrollment

 

Spring enrollment for classes in the Golden Tigers at Cowley College is scheduled from 1-4 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29 in the Earle N. Wright Community Room inside the Brown Center at Cowley.

The Golden Tigers is for women and men age 50 and over. There is a $5 registration fee and a fee of $2 per class. Fees for classes and trips are due at the time of enrollment. Some classes have additional costs or supplies needed.

Persons planning to attend enrollment from 1-4 p.m. Jan. 29 should bring mailing labels to use on their enrollment forms and sign-up sheets. This saves writing your name repeatedly and speeds up the enrollment process. Enrollment by telephone or mail will be accepted after Jan. 29.
