Cowley's Golden Tigers to hold fall enrollment Aug. 25

 

The Cowley College Golden Tigers, a popular program for men and women age 50 and over, will hold its fall enrollment from 1-4 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 25 in the Earle N. Wright Community Room inside the Brown Center on the main campus.

There is a $5 registration fee per person for the semester, and a $2 fee per class. Some classes have additional costs or supplies needed.

Persons attending fall enrollment are reminded to bring their mailing labels to use on the enrollment form and sign-up sheets. This saves writing their name multiple times and speeds up the enrollment process.
Four educational trips are planned throughout the fall, including two to Oklahoma City, one to Wichita, and one to Topeka.
