CGPS announces Spring 2007 Senior Scholars Program
From poetry and great literary icons to local and international history, the spring 2007 Senior Scholars Program is filled with entertaining and educational information for area seniors.
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. about every other Wednesday in Mark Clark Hall during the academic year.
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 or visit the Senior Scholars Program by clicking here.
