5/8/12


West Windsor, NJ -- Looking for a new hobby or interest?  Mercer County Community College’s Center for Continuing Studies is offering many unique noncredit courses this summer, including several new offerings.  Classes are held weekends and evenings on the college’s West Windsor campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.

Among the new horticulture classes being offered is “Sustainable Gardening,” which emphasizes organic gardening and how to maximize space, May 17-June 21.  Also new this semester is “Fundamentals of Landscape Design and Maintenance,” which enables those attending to complete a landscape design for their own home, June 2-30.

Those trying to catch up on the new technology that keeps popping up can check out “The World of Mobile Apps,” being taught by MCCC Instructor John Gontowicz on June 7.  While not a technical course, this class helps attendees understand the personal and marketable purpose of mobile applications.

Two courses for enthusiastic writers are being offered, “Write Your Story: Memoir Writing Class” is returning Aug. 4-25, and a new course, “Reading Better: Understanding How Fiction Works,” delves into useful techniques for those with an interest in reading and writing fiction, July 3-17.

Also, parents and students alike will benefit from “Understanding the College Admissions Process,” July 17-31, where junior and senior high school students can learn how to create the best application for their top school choice.

Learners of all ages who want to know more will be interested in “Back to School Night for Adults” on Tuesday, Aug. 28, at 6 p.m. at the Conference Center.  For more information or to register for these and other classes offered through MCCC's Center for Continuing Studies, call (609) 570-3311 or click here.
