Aug. 12 marked the end of the summer 2005 session at Drury's Cabool campus.
Those who were enrolled in summer classes had an eclectic variety of subjects to choose from and included courses such as beginning swimming, taught by Karma Murr, and a special topic course entitled Serial Homicide, taught by Tim Ceplina.
Students who were enrolled in the science course speleology during the summer session acquired valuable hands-on experience when they visited two local cave systems. Kurt Wiersemsa, course instructor, has been spelunking in the Ozarks for over 30 years and willingly shared his enthusiasm and expertise with his students. His science class took two field trips and visited the Ozark Underground Laboratory in Taney County and Round Spring Cave near Eminence. Wiersema will be teaching earth science and environmental geoscience at the cabool campus in the upcoming fall semester.
Drury students who participated in the trip to Washington, D.C., in June reported that the trip, led by Dr. Gary Tyrrell, was filled with historic meaning and significance. In the week spent in the nation's Capitol, students viewed and toured numerous sites and gained a deeper appreciation of America's past and a better understanding of current events. Dr. Tyrrell will be teaching two history courses at Drury's Cabool campus for the fall 2005 semester, entitled History of the American Frontier and Survey of U.S. History II, respectively.
The fall semester at Drury's Cabool campus began Aug. 29 and will run through Dec. 16. For more information about Drury, contact 417-962-5314 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
