Undergraduate degree fast tracks college education


Eastern Gateway Community College will again host The University of Akron's Bachelor of Organization Supervision degree for the 2012-2013 academic year. The program benefits professionals who want to move ahead in their fields and develop leadership and supervisory competencies.

Community members are invited to an information session to learn more about the program on Monday, April 23, at 6 p.m. at the Jefferson County Campus Student Center (Room 2102), 4000 Sunset Blvd., Steubenville, Ohio.
