I am a student at Franciscan University of Steubenville, a small Catholic university (approx 2000 students) in Steubenville, Ohio. This semester our school is offering a 3-credit night class on the Lord of the Rings, which recieved an enthusiastic response. In fact, the course is being offered through teleconferencing to students in our schools “semester abroad” program, who are studying in the Austrian Alps. This group of students studying abroad has shown a particularly great enthusiasm simply in signing up for the class. Due to the time difference between America and Austria the class, which begins at 6:00 EST, begins for the Austrian students at midnight and ends at 2:40 AM.
