The Winter 2001 class schedule for Evening at Oxford was posted to the web, Dec. 9. Online applications for classes are being accepted starting today, Dec. 11. Applications by other meansphone, fax, etc.will start in January.
Evening at Oxford is one of the ways the college hopes to share
its resources with the community, said Oxford Dean Dana Greene.
We are happy to make available opportunities for intellectual enrichment
right here in Newton County.
The Evening at Oxford program began this past fall and was successful
enough that class offerings have doubled.
The numbers of students were relatively low to start, said
Steve Stoffle, director of Evening at Emory, which administers Evening
at Oxford. But as word has gotten around, weve seen a lot
of increased participation. The Oxford community has responded really
Many people who attended classes during the fall had never been to Oxford
before and they fell in love with the campus, Stoffle said.
As with all Evening at Emory programs, class instructors include a mix
of University professors and outside experts. For instance, Rev. Robert
Wooten, pastor of Mansfield United Methodist Church, will teach a course
on Newton County history.
Oxford professors Hoyt Oliver and Richard Shappell also lend their expertise
to evening classes related to religion (Abraham, Are You at OM?
Religions West and East) and leisure activity (Fly Fishing for BeginnersShappell
