Community College Tells Students To Stay Home, Save Gas - TIMOTHY CAMA, BRISTOL HERALD COURIER

Area colleges are helping its students combat high gas prices by reducing the frequency of classes so students will commute less often.... “ETSU also offers numerous classes online,” she added... Students at Mountain Empire frequently “self-select,” said Sharon Fisher, a college spokeswoman, meaning they deliberately schedule classes so they may only have to attend two or three days a week. Mountain Empire also offers online and “hybrid” classes, or classes taught online in which students come to the campus a few times throughout the semester.
