 10/22/2014State System universities to offer more than 600 courses online over holiday break
The holidays are coming and you know what that means. Sure, plenty of food, friends and parties, but it’s also a chance to catch up on your college credits, or even to get a little bit ahead. All 14 universities within Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education offer a version of “Winter College,” where students have a chance to take a course or two while on break between the fall and spring semesters. Collectively, the schools will offer more than 600 courses online, which means you can sign up for and take a class from virtually anywhere, no matter where you are spending that break.

​California University of Pennsylvania classmates Jessica Laguerre-Joseph and Breanna Lincoski have big ambitions.

To help prepare for such a career, she studied this summer at the Centre International d’Antibes in southern France. Lincoski wants to be a veterinarian. To help boost her prospects of getting into the graduate school of her choice, she spent five weeks this summer at a field school in Madagascar. Both were recipients of a Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
