On Friday, July 30, 2010 Sojourner-Douglass College was at Woodstock Job Corps Center to conduct three separate information sessions for students. The college is beginning what may soon become Woodstock’s premier college institution housed on site at the Woodstock Center.
The information sessions, held in the Student Activities Lounge, were offered to the Education Department from 9 a.m. to 9:50 a.m., the CTT Department from 9:50 a.m. to 10:50 a.m. and all Business & Services CTT from 10:50 a.m. to 11:50 a.m. by the Advanced Career Training program (ACT).
Lou Andrews, a professor at the college, Reno Thompson and Bernice Kohls of the Professional and Continuing Studies Office and Peggy Anderson of the Admissions Office of Enrollment and Recruitment led the information sessions. The sessions focused on providing students with information on the enrollment and admissions process and general information about the college. The college has six locations: Annapolis, Baltimore, Bahamas, Cambridge, Owings Mills, Prince George’s County, Salisbury and St. Croix.
The arrangement with Woodstock would enable the college to offer all course studies available at college campuses at the Woodstock facility. Students would enroll in regular semesters and the college anticipates beginning the program in November or December.
“We are very excited about this opportunity as is our President,” said Reno Thompson, Program Manager, for the Office of Professional & Continuing Studies at Sojourner-Douglass College. “We think it’s a win-win for everyone and once we get on site we anticipate we will get a lot more student interest.”
The college will return on August 17 for an enrollment/admission session from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., followed by diagnostic assessments on August 23. Student registration is scheduled for September 28-30 and new student orientation on October 19. The winter semester is currently scheduled to begin on November 15, 2010.
