The Wilmette Institute Announces Courses for Its First Term, January–March 2018

The Wilmette Institute has announced its courses for its first term, which runs from January through March 2018. To appeal to our international audience, the Institute is naming the four terms first, second, and so on, as Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall do not work in the Southern Hemisphere. It is using Terms, rather than Quarters, as the Terms are not all the same length. You can access the First-Term courses by opening the Wilmette Institute’s web page and clicking on the 2018 Courses tab. You can also access the First-Term courses in this issue of the eNewsletter.
