University College to host Preview Night Dec. 11

University College, the evening and summer program in Arts & Sciences, will host a Preview Night 7 p.m. Dec. 11 in Holmes Lounge in Ridgley Hall.

Preview Night features speakers who will discuss class and program offerings, admissions requirements and financial aid. Spring semester classes at University College start Jan. 12, 2009.

“Preview night is the most vivid and efficient event for someone considering University College specifically or returning to school generally,” said Robert E. Wiltenburg, Ph.D., dean of University College.

“We gather together current students and faculty, program coordinators and University College advisers to provide information and reflection on all aspects of the adult education experience: academics, programs, costs, career planning, etc.,” Wiltenburg said.

Preview Night is open to the public. A special breakout room will be available for University College to answer questions specifically geared to WUSTL employees.

University College classes are free to full-time, benefits-eligible WUSTL employees with one year or greater length of service before the first day of classes. For more information about this benefit, visit

A light dinner and dessert will be served.
