Winter Mini-mesters Gaining Popularity

Star-Ledger, 01/07/07 - Earn three to four credits in two weeks? That's right. Winter intersessions or mini-mesters are now in demand across the state. Classes offered on campus are approximately 4 hours long and meet on a daily basis. Online classes provide working students with far greater flexibility in terms of scheduling.

"The class is demanding," claims Norma Guevara, a South Plainfield resident who is taking an online course at William Paterson University which will allow her to graduate earlier than anticipated.

Winter intersessions have come along way since the 1970's when the concept was a novel one. For an interesting retrospective read Pancakes and Plumbing, an article from the January 24, 1977 issue of Time Magazine.
