University College to host spring Preview Night Dec. 9

University College — the adult, evening and continuing education division in Arts & Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis — will host a Preview Night at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 9, 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. 18, 2011.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.

“Preview night is the most vivid and efficient event for someone considering University College specifically or returning to school generally,” says Robert E. Wiltenburg, PhD, 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 says.

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.

Most University College undergraduate classes are free to full-time, benefits-eligible WUSTL employees with one year or greater length of service before the first day of classes. The tuition benefit also covers 50 percent of graduate course costs. For more information about tuition benefits, visit

A light dinner and dessert will be served.
