Last Chance to Register for 12-Week Classes at GCC

Late Start Session Begins Monday, Sept. 19

Batavia, New York — There are still opportunities to enroll in fall classes at Genesee Community College! The late-start, 12-week session begins Monday, September 19, 2016 and courses are offered at most of GCC’s seven campus locations, as well as online. 


Principles of Fly Fishing (PED 193) is one of the more unique, new courses available. It is being offered at GCC’s Medina Campus Center at 11470 Maple Ridge Road. The new two-credit course runs on Tuesday nights and begins this Tuesday, September 20, 2016 from 6 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. under instructor Patrick Seidel. “This 12-week course is perfect for anyone interested in fly fishing – from the beginner or novice, to those who have some experience but want to refine their skills,” Seidel, an adjunct instructor said. “Tom Brokaw once said, ‘If fishing is a religion, fly fishing is high church.’ We intend to make this new course a fun, educational opportunity that welcomes the whole ‘congregation’ of fly fishing enthusiasts.”


Seidel has been teaching at GCC since the fall of 2015 and has 15 years of fly fishing experience to his credit. He is also a fly fishing instructor for the Lockport High School and a Wilderness First Aid instructor, American Red Cross instructor, and New York State First Aid instructor.
