And the lucky winners are…

Two students were chosen to win a free course for Spring semester by registering early during Priority Registration Week. Reg Week was held from Monday, October 28 – Saturday, November 2, exclusively for current students to get a head start on securing their classes for Spring semester.

During the week-long event, over 1300 students registered early, exceeding this year’s goal of 1000.  

Congratulations to Jessica Morrow and Katherine Bullerwell for registering early and winning a free class each!
