College Degree Opportunity
at the Learning Center
Have you ever wanted to do something different with your life? Would you like to have a degree in
Education, Computer Science, Engineering, Business Administration or any other degree? Have you ever
considered going to college to get a degree, but just couldn’t get motivated, thought it would be too
inconvenient or thought it wasn’t possible because of your work schedule?
We have good news for you. To help you get started we are partnering with Southwestern Illinois College
(SWIC) to offer general studies classes at the Learning Center. We plan to offer the same classes twice
each day, a morning and an afternoon class. You will be able to attend either class, so you will not miss
class if something comes up on the class day. Pretty convenient, right? Oh, did I mention your cost, $0
and we’re close to the plant.
At this meeting SWIC will be here to explain and answer your
questions about the general studies courses that we will be
offering here at the Learning Center.
We will have doughnuts at
the morning meeting and pizza at the afternoon meeting. Make
sure to call and sign up for this meeting!
To sign up for this explanation meeting please call 451-3337 or email us at the following:
We need to hear from you by Friday, April 4th.
Opportunity is knocking, what are you waiting for?
