Winter Session, a special three-week academic term each January at VWC, gives students a chance to explore unusual subjects, immerse themselves in unique experiences, or even learn through travel while earning credits toward graduation. The theme of Winter Session 2013 is “crosscurrents.” A variety of classes and events will explore this topic as it relates to culture, politics, music, literature and more. Among those events is a performance by Kishi Bashi, whose music is an interdisciplinary blend of East and West, on Jan. 10 at 7 p.m. in the Marlin Grille. On Jan. 17, a panel of Virginia Wesleyan professors will expand on the crosscurrents concept with presentation titles such as "Transcending Language Barriers through Visual Art" and "Words Across Cultures." Courses being offering during Winter Session 2013 range from “Food Fights & Christian Identity” to “Supply Chain Management and Logistics” to “Latin American Music and Dance.” Faculty-led travel destinations include Costa Rica, Hawaii, the Mayan region of Mexico, and the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana. Also during Winter Session, VWC hosts its annual Winter Homeless Shelter, the only homeless shelter held on a college campus in the U.S. Find out more about Winter Session.
