Name Change: The English Institute at English Language Center
The English Language Institute is simplifying its name to the English Institute, or EI for short. The English Institute will continue to be the full-time English program within the English Language Center. The English Institute currently has about 150 students, most of whom have an F1 (student) visa.
Winter and Spring 2012 Course Schedule
Pick up the winter and spring course brochure now in the EI Office, or view the brochure on the EI website! You can register for winter and spring classes starting November 21. To register, please make an appointment with your advisor. F1 international students must provide proof of health insurance for next semester before they can register.
The English Institute said goodbye to Emily Betz Close on October 28. She accepted a new position working for a governmental organization in Washington, DC. We will miss her!
Please welcome our new EI Advisor, Leonor Davis! Leonor speaks Portuguese and French and will advise students who previously met with Emily. She is available for appointments on Mondays and Thursdays.
