Missoula College University of Montana will offer free college preparation noncredit classes for qualified veterans. This is through the Montana Veterans Upward Bound program during October and November. The courses are designed to help veterans brush up on basic skills in small, supportive groups. Courses include computers, math and writing. Veterans, you do not need to be enrolled in Missoula College or UM to attend these courses. You just need to qualify. I'd sure like you to call Mary Opitz, coordinator of the Veterans Upward Bound program at UM, 406-243-7812, or e-mail mary.opitz@umontana.edu. Good luck and thank you so much for your service! DB
