Campus News at East Texas Baptist University has a new post by Mike Midkiff with the title "ETBU Begins Fall Semester Monday, August 31". According to the report, classes will start on Monday, August 31, 2009. Compare it to August 27, 2007 and August 25, 2008 (please refer to the respective catalogs for reference). Contrary to popular myth, classes are NOT starting a week late this year. It is still the last Monday of the month of August.
The Campus News reports that ETBU 101 (orientation for freshmen) will be from August 26, 2009 through August 30, 2009, ending just a day before the new school year begins. This author himself was a part of ETBU 101 a couple of years back. I thoroughly enjoyed every small session (and most of the full sessions). If you get to attend, I strongly recommend that you do.
