PPSNYS Workshop Class of 2019

Located on Seneca Lake, between Syracuse and Rochester, Hobart & William Smith Colleges is a private school which provides a perfect setting for a concentrated week of photographic advancement. Registration will be from 1-4pm on Sunday, followed by a wine and cheese party from 5-6. After a 6pm dinner, group & class photographs are done and a short informational session is held with your instructor. Classes are daily Monday thru Thursday approximately 8:30am to 4:30pm and will adjourn at noon on Friday. There is a banquet Thursday night and afterwards the students receive their packets from their instructor.

Your tuition ($1095.00) includes a prominent instructor for the week, air-conditioned classrooms, dorm facilities, choice of course, breakfast, lunch, dinner, the wine and cheese party, Thursday night banquet, degree merits for PPA members ( if PPA member ), class photograph, diploma for the wall, T shirt, and central parking facility.

Optional no meals plan - if you would prefer not to eat on campus for the week and wish to get your meals elsewhere you can deduct $100.00 off your tuition. You still can get meals on campus after choosing this option but you will have to pay for them at the door. Once you choose the "optional no meals plan" the regular meals plan is not available. Sunday's dinner and Thursday's banquet will still be included in your tuition.

Lodging: Rooms are included in tuition. If you prefer no room, deduct $40.00. Be sure to write the location of your lodging on your registration if you are to be located off campus. Also individuals, not attending classes, can receive lodging, meals included, for just $475.00 extra each.
