Goodwell, Okla.-- The OPSU Guymon Classroom is now open for business, with computers ready for student use and instructors eager for classes to begin.

Oklahoma Panhandle State University President Dave Bryant unveiled the facility, located at Fifth and Roosevelt, to local dignitaries and Guymon residents at a grand opening reception last Monday, May 15.

The Guymon Classroom will provide working adults with the opportunity to learn practical skills they can apply to their professional and personal lives. With non-credit courses offered right in Guymon, students will have a convenient way to learn more about computers, professional communication skills, and other useful topics. The courses are not as concentrated as those that degree-seeking students complete and are geared specifically toward the needs of busy adults. Non-credit classes offered this summer include Computers for Beginners, Microsoft Office and Spanish for Business.

In addition, OPSU will also offer some credit courses at the Guymon Classroom, giving commuting students and high school juniors and seniors who wish to take college courses concurrently an opportunity to attend classes closer to home. Math for Critical Thinking and Freshman English I, both 3-hour credit courses, will be offered in Guymon during the summer session.

The OPSU Guymon Classroom is available thanks to the work of the Education Committee of the Guymon Chamber of Commerce. Committee members include committee chair Bryant, Dr. Wayne Manning, Larry Peters, Consuelo Luera, Dr. Pauline Hodges, Teri Mora, Dave O’Sullivan, Ron Strecker, Dale Lewis, Bob Johnson and Mike Shannon.

Come check out what OPSU has to offer in the Guymon Classroom this summer, and keep looking for more exciting things to come. OPSU has a full slate of credit and non-credit courses planned for the 2006-2007 school year!

For more information or to enroll in a class, contact Consuelo Luera or Estela Vedoy in the OPSU Office of Continuing Education at 580-349-1550.
