Greetings from the campus of the University of Montana Western in Dillon, Mont.
Montana Western is Montana’s educational gem. Please allow me to explain.
This is an exceptional place to live, learn and earn a degree. Our faculty and staff are truly dedicated to students and the institutional mission of experiential learning as practiced through Experience One (X1), our innovative model of delivering classes one at a time. In 2005, Montana Western became the first American public university to fully implement a block scheduling program. Under this system students take, and faculty teach, one course during a block lasting three and a half weeks followed by a four-day break between blocks.
The School of Outreach teams up with the Friends of the Gallatin National Forest to offer a free Basic Avalanche Awareness Workshop. During this hour-long, multi-media presentation, participants will learn to recognize avalanche terrain, how the weather affects the avalanche hazard and the development of the mountain snowpack. Decision-making skills and basic search and rescue procedures will also be covered.
When: Monday, Jan. 13; 7 p.m.
Where: UMW campus, Swysgood Technology Center (STC) Great Room
