National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, May 2015!

It is important for people of all ages to have regular physical activity.  Participating in National Physical Fitness and Sports Month is a great way to start being active and spreading the word! There are many opportunities for everyone to do more physical activities this month.  Here is a list of a few ideas:

  • Go for a walk or a bike ride in the evenings with the family.
  • Encourage teachers and work administrators to include some type of physical activity everyday.
  • While watching television, stand or do some stretching instead of sitting.

Why is it important?

For children and adolescent it can improve muscular fitness and bone health.  For adults, being active can reduce your risk of many different types of diseases including heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cancer.  For older adults being active will lower the risk of being injured from falls and it also improves learning and judgment skills.

Nursing and Summer Session 2015 at MSUM

Why You Should Consider Taking Summer Classes

Summer Session classes are very popular with  MSUM students, due to the fact that they help students catch up if they are behind on credits; get ahead to possibly graduate sooner; take classes they can’t fit in during the academic year; help to lighten the load for more difficult classes that may have to be taken during the regular school year; or explore offerings that are purely based on interest. MSUM Summer Session 2014 offers a wide variety of courses online and in the classroom for students who want to earn credits toward Liberal Arts and Sciences Curriculum (LASC) requirements or degree requirements. The Nursing Summer Session, however, presents to students the opportunity of taking classes completely online, therefore providing the ease of receiving quality education from the comfort of your own home.

What Nursing Has To Offer This Summer

Courses are offered in flexible three-, four-, five-, six- and eight-week sessions from May 20th–August 6th and credits vary depending on each course. Follow the links below to explore Summer options for Nursing, as well as other courses available.

Farewell Spring 2015…Hello Summer and Fall 2015!

MSUM_Signature_Horz_R&G

 

The Spring 2015 semester here at MSUM is almost over, and the Summer 2015 and Fall 2015 sessions are just around the corner. The general plan for many during this period is to get some well-earned relaxation time, while others will use this opportunity to make extra progress toward the graduation journey, by taking a few summer classes here and there.

Regardless of what your plans are, it is important to register for Fall 2015 classes as soon as possible, because they fill up very quickly. Take the time to sit down and map out a solid plan that involves taking all the right classes this Fall. Discuss your options with your advisor and receive your access code in order to be able to register.

Also, if you want to take summer classes, speak with your advisor and register as soon as possible, as many low enrolled summer courses may already be cancelled.

This is a time within which certain Nursing classes can be taken, and LASC goals can be completed.

Check out eServices today to be able to register for your courses.
