Now that 2012 is here and the official holidays are over, many on campus will be looking forward to Jan Term, "... that class term held during the month of January for approximately four weeks. Courses offered in the Interim are designed to encourage students to explore course content outside of their majors."
Jan Term provides a wonderful opportunity for students, faculty and staff to explore other disciplines and cultures. Some will travel abroad to Greece or England with their instructors while others have been inticed by courses such as Frank O'Connor's What Shall I Eat? or Tolkien and the Middle Ages taught by Dr. Kevin Shirley. Mammals of Georgia and the Southeast focuses on Georgia wildlife and students will conduct research involving live trapping and estimating populations.
