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.
