Cowley's Golden Tigers to hold fall enrollment Aug. 23

 

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 23 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.


Three educational trips are planned throughout the fall. The trips include Concordia, KS, Tulsa, OK, and Towanda, KS.


The Golden Tigers are also offering a Driver Safety Class from 1-5 p.m. October 11-12. The class will be held at the Webb-Brown Academic Center Room 204. Ron Upton will serve as the instructor for the class. The cost is $15 for AARP members and $20 for non-members.


The Driver Safety program is an 8-hour classroom refresher course. Individuals must attend both sessions to receive a certificate. Insurance companies in Kansas give a discount to seniors on their car insurance upon class completion.


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: margaret.neal@cowley.edu.
