CGPS announces Fall 2007 Senior Scholars Program
Variety is the spice of life and it will be the spice that highlights the fall 2007 Senior Scholars Program at The Citadel's College of Graduate and Professional Studies.
The Senior Scholars Program is designed for mature adults who want continued intellectual and social interaction in a scholastic setting. The group meets from 2 to 4 p.m. (unless otherwise noted) about every other Wednesday during the academic year in Mark Clark Hall.
No formal education is required for membership, but participants are considered non-degree students of the College of Graduate and Professional Studies and are authorized to use the library, computer labs, and recreational facilities. They also can attend cultural events and are entitled to student rates for tickets to athletic contests. During scheduled programs, members enjoy refreshments and light snacks and share their experiences with guest speakers from the faculty and from the business and professional community.
Cost is $35 per semester. For more information about this program call 953-5089.
