Cowley�s Golden Tigers to hold fall enrollment Aug. 28

 

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, August 28 in the Earle N. Wright Community Room inside the Brown Center on the main campus in Arkansas City.

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. The trips include, Hutchinson, Wichita, Yukon, OK, and a Mystery Trip.

Persons wanting more information about the Golden Tigers program should contact Margaret Neal, Institute Coordinator, at (620) 441-5286 from 8:30 a.m. to noon Monday through Thursday, or by e-mail: neal@cowley.edu.
