A&S Maymester: Students Add Sizzle to their Summer

2010 Maymester

For the second year, the College of Arts & Sciences is offering an intensive three-week summer Maymester term from May 10-29, 2010. More than 150 students, some enrolled in up to two courses, are taking classes in 14 different sections, covering 11 diverse subjects, including eight popular general education requirements.  Maymester

“Working with the multiple offices across campus, we decided a Maymester was a great opportunity to use our A&S resources to offer intensive courses to students,” said Laurie M. Joyner, dean of the faculty.  “Our Maymester provides Rollins students the additional opportunity to take required courses over the summer and help them move closer towards their graduation goals.”

For example, during this year’s Maymester, students have the option to study The History of Rock and Roll to fulfill the College’s expressive arts requirement, Reading Sherlock Holmes to complete the literature requirement, receive an Introduction to Lasers and Light, to satisfy the physical science requirement, or learn the Ecology of Environmental Issues in completion of organic science requirements.

The tuition for each Maymester course is $1,500 and students may enroll in a maximum of two summer courses in any Rollins program. On-campus housing remains available on a first-come, first-served basis to A&S Maymester students at an additional cost of $850, which includes a non-refundable $150 declining balance meal plan.

Registering, adding, or dropping Maymester courses continues in writing in the Office of Student Records through May 7; however, the deadline to drop Maymester classes with a 100 percent refund is April 30, 2010.
