Math Boot Camp

matha Every summer, NDNU offers a FREE math “boot camp” designed to help students who haven’t taken math for some time to recall concepts learned long ago. Students who attend all classes AND invest time doing the assigned homework tend to pass the placement examination, which allows them to take Statistical Concepts, a NDNU course that satisfies the math requirement.The dates for the boot camp are July 11, 18, 25, and August 1. It will start promptly at 8am and end at noon.

If you are interested in attending, please contact Judy King at to sign up and for the location.

Spring Break Trips Announced



Alternative Spring Break applications are now available. If you are interested in participating in an alternative spring break in either Mendocino, CA or at St. Bonaventure Indian Mission in New Mexico, you can pick up an application in the Sr. Dorothy Stang Center (behind the Chapel).  For a flyer on the Mendocino trip, click here.  Both look like excellent opportunities to learn, contribute, and have fun; students in the past who have participated have been very enthusiastic and the faculty who are leading each trip are lovely, inspiring people.

This one, through PG&E, specifies that it is open to “nontraditional” students as long as you are a PG&E customer; might be worth a try!  The scholarships are up to $20,000 per year and smaller awards will be made as well.

Good luck!  Note that the deadline for applications is February 9.
