Course Offerings Provide More Than Days and Times

On the day that the printed course offering packets are released, in the weeks leading up to pre-registration for each new semester, there is always a frenzy of interest (although I think fewer and fewer students use the paper version of the course offerings).  The towering piles of booklets, looming like sentries by the doors of the Solution Center, are…
