With the upcoming new semester, those planning for dual enrollment might want to consider doing it soon. The final opportunity to sign up for classes is January 17th.  It would be better to go in to sign up for classes though, because many people will decide to do it last minute. The admissions office for Cameron University is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Information for signing for undergraduate admissions will be available on the Cameron website.

Fall Baseball

The Fall season has come. So has the Baseball team, with our players Dylan McDonald and Jordan Pilgrim ready for the season. Games will be every Sunday from
9:00 A.M. — 11:00 A.M. or 1:00 P.M. — 3:00 P.M. Dylan McDonald plays Infield on the Fall team. Dylan and Jordan have both been playing as far back
as they could remeber. To them, Baseball has always been a part of their life, a strong Family influence brought them to take up Baseball when they were younger, and they still play today. So let’s give them some Elgin support for their coming game this weekend.
