University College (UC) is opening its doors to the public to celebrate its 100th year of providing education to part-time students.

An Open House and a tour of University College will take place on Thursday, April 19, from noon-3 p.m. Visitors can check out the newly launched Center for Online and Digital Learning, learn about remitted tuition benefits, the English Language Institute, and degree and certificate programs. Information is also available on UC’s Bachelor of Professional Studies Program.

Sean Kirst, an award-winning Upstate New York journalist, current columnist for the Buffalo News and former Post-Standard columnist as well as the author of “The Soul of Central New York: Syracuse Stories” will be available for a book signing. His book will be available for purchase at the open house.
