University Of Rhode Island's New Winter Semester A Success
The University of Rhode Island will be offering a mini semester during the January break to help students get caught up on course work. The semester will run from January 2nd to January 17th. One-hundred and twenty five students signed up during the first two days of enrollment.
Mini semester director John Olerio said students in especially demanding majors find it hard to finish their course work in four years.
"For students who are engineering majors, pharmacy majors .. our really intensive programs that have so much course work it’s difficult to get those in in the fall and spring. This gives them another opportunity to complete those courses and graduate on time," said Olerio.
Two hundred students are expected to take courses during URI’s mini semester.
