Submitted on April 19, 2010 at 10:46 AM

Summer school is traditionally viewed as a way to catch up in college. In reality it's also a way to get ahead. Volunteer State Community College has offerings for everyone from high school students trying to get a jump start on college, to university students home for the summer. There are three different sessions. Classes start on May 7 for Maymester, which is a fast and intensive session held in less than a month. Classes begin on June 1 for the first summer session and July 6 for the second summer session. Registration is open now.

More than 150 classes are being offered on the main campus during the two summer sessions. Criminal Investigation features investigative techniques and methods used at a variety of mock crime scenes. Another course titled Criminology helps students learn about the sociological, biological, and psychological theories behind criminal behavior. Paralegal Studies is offering a Medical Malpractice class with an expert in the medical defense field. Two teacher recertification classes are offered this summer: Education of Exceptional Children and Child Psychology.

Zumba Fitness classes are being offered for the first time during a summer session. Zumba Fitness is aerobic exercise put to Latin rhythms and music. Students may take the class for credit, or anyone in the community can take the class through the Continuing Education Office at 615-230-3358.

New students will need to apply to the college before enrolling. The Admissions Office can help with that. They are also located in the Ramer building room 173. Admissions can be reached by phone at 615-230-3688. Visit www.volstate.edu/schedule for the complete summer and Maymester class listings.
