PINEHURST – Distinguished visiting scholar Dr. Julian Pleasants will teach two history courses during the fall semester at Sandhills Community College.
This eminent historian and recipient of numerous teaching awards will join the Sandhills faculty as the North Caroliniana Scholar in Residence. This position will be funded by the North Caroliniana Society to help raise awareness of North Carolina and American history among college students. This marks the first time that a community college has been selected by the North Caroliniana Society.
Dr. Pleasants will teach a survey course, “North Carolina History” during the Fall Mini-Mester, which will run from Sept. 22 until Dec. 14. This is a curriculum course, which means it is taken for college credit.
Registration for fall semester curriculum classes is on Aug. 12. New students need to apply, request transcripts, take the Accuplacer test, and pre-advise on or prior to August 10. New students can apply online or in the Student Services Department in Stone Hall. All registration information can be found at www.sandhills.edu or by calling 695-3725. Fall semester begins on Aug. 16.
