USI now offering several college classes at off-campus locations

The University of Southern Indiana is now offering nine course at off-campus locations.

Instructed by USI faculty, the courses meet one night a week or on selected Saturdays.

University officials say most offerings meet University Core Curriculum requirements, which they say helps students make significant progress toward a degree.

Five courses, including CMST 101: Intro to Public Speaking, HIST 102: U.S. Since 1865, HUM 212: Western Traditions in the Humanities II, PSY 201: Intro to Psychology, and PSY 322: Abnormal Psychology will be offered at the National Guard Armory at 3300 E. Division Street in Evansville. Courses will meet one night a week from 6 to 8:45 p.m.

ENG 105: Introduction to Literature and BIOL 251: Environmental Conservation will take place Tuesday nights at Castle High School located on Highway 261 in Newburgh, Indiana.

Students pursuing a Master of Social Work degree can register for SOCW 608: Theories of Clinical Practice. The course will meet at Innovation Pointe located at 318 Main Street in downtown Evansville on Thursdays from 6 to 8:45 p.m. COMM 616: Performance in Social Contexts will also be offered to students in the Master of Arts in Communications program. The course will meet from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. every other Saturday beginning on September 9.

"USI Nearby is a great solution for evening students," said Lee Ann Shafer, academic program manager in the Division of Outreach and Engagement. "The National Guard Armory is near the Lloyd Expressway, and many students drive right by it on the way to the USI campus. The savings in drive time and fuel costs are significant for students who take classes at the armory. Innovation Pointe's downtown location is perfect for many of USI's graduate students."

Current and returning students may enroll in fall classes through MyUSI. Students who are new to USI may register during open registration beginning on Friday, August 23 with fall classes starting on Monday, August 26. Late registration will begin on the first day of class and will run through Friday, August 30.
