Countywide : UC Irvine to Open Extension Branch

UC Irvine will open its first university extension branch in north Orange County next week, officials said.

UCI Extension will offer 22 courses at the satellite location in Anaheim, UCI Extension spokeswoman Marguerite Bonous-Hammarth said. Classes begin Sept. 1.

The facility includes three classrooms where teachers will conduct daytime, evening and weekend classes, Bonous-Hammarth said. UCI Extension instructors will also organize customized classes for corporations and businesses at that site.

Classes offered during the first semester include Spanish for business professionals, basic Russian, handling hazardous materials emergencies and basic math and science review.


Classrooms will be based at 411 W. Broadway in Anaheim, Bonous-Hammarth said, until builders finish construction on a permanent two-story facility for UCI Extension in Anaheim in March, 1996.
