We may be in the heart of the spring semester and gearing up for midterms and spring break but now is the time to start thinking about Maymester. It runs May 22 – June 9.
You have probably already begun seeing posters/flyers popping up all over campus. Many of the classes offered will fulfill general education requirements.
Among the courses already set, BIO 104, Chesapeake Bay. This natural science requirement will explore habitats, geologic history, water chemistry, and preserving and restoring the Bay with instructor, Captain Ian Robbins, MS of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.
For more information on Maymester and registration contact the Registrar’s Office.
