SALISBURY— From aromatherapy to yoga, Rowan-Cabarrus Community College is offering a wide range of short-term courses this spring.

Through the personal enrichment program, the college offers courses for self-improvement, cultural enrichment and academic achievement.

Need a knowledge boost when it comes to your android phone? – we’ve got you covered. Yearning to learn a new language? We can help,” said Staggers. “We really strive to offer a variety of courses across multiple campuses for a greater community reach.”
