New Semester getting underway

A line in the Student Union Building as Student Services tries to get the bugs worked out of their new security system. High-fives and big smiles as friends who have not seen each other since the first week of May begin to reconnect. The upperclassmen are back and the first-year students appear to be acclimating. It is the first day of a new semester.

And, tonight is the first night of the new EESP 2008-2009 school year for the non-traditional college students who come to Coker to earn their degree at night. The night term has the first classes this evening from 5:30 to 7:50 and the second classes begin just after 8:00p.m. and go until 10:30 p.m. This is an intense schedule but it is one that allows a student to complete a four-year degree in four years, if they are starting from scratch and if they don't take any term off during the four years. I have the speech class in both terms one and two this semester.
