University Express Classes


These are free one hour courses in a variety of topics such as current events, history, and science. Classes are designed to provide older adults with opportunities for intellectual stimulation, learning, and discussion in accessible settings. No homework or no tests, just exciting discussions on academic topics alongside peers with similar interests. 


Fall 2016 proved to be another successful and fascinating semester of University Express. Thank you to all who attended and for your continued interest in the program.
