Commuter classes at New Orleans to begin in Jan., Kelley announces


NEW ORLEANS (BP) New Orleans Seminary will hold classes on its New Orleans campus starting in January, NOBTS President Chuck Kelley has announced. He also said that the May graduation ceremony will be held on campus in Leavell Chapel.

In addition to the classes on the New Orleans campus, a full range of course delivery systems will be offered in the spring semester for undergraduate and graduate students, including beefed-up offerings at extension centers, Internet courses, threaded discussion directed study courses, weekend classes and one-week academic workshops.

Because student housing will not be available in January, the courses are designed with commuter students in mind. The seminary will continue to offer a variety of study options during the spring semester for those who cannot commute to the main campus.

Although a few classes at some extension centers begin Jan. 18, most on-campus and extension center classes will begin Jan. 23.

Because students remain scattered throughout the country, NOBTS will continue to offer an extensive schedule of online courses. One-week academic workshops will be held in seven different locations including Atlanta.
