Classes for the fall 2009 term at Hodges University’s Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning begin this week, with several courses still open for registration.
As a member-directed, multi-generational learning community, The Center invites area residents to participate in a diverse range of collaborative, life enhancing activities which are both intellectually and socially fulfilling.
“The Center prides itself on offering low registration fees and a wide variety of courses each semester,” said Christine Wheeler, Director of the Center. “We are constantly looking to offer different courses each semester, giving the participants a wide variety of choices.”
Annual membership in the Center entitles class participants to free registration in more than 150 courses offered throughout the year. The Center also offers a one-time free guest pass, allowing a participant to “test drive” a course offered there.
Programs are planned and led by Hodges University faculty or notable industry experts. The broad-based curriculum allows for stimulating discussion groups, lectures, field trips, and workshops involving arts and literature, economics, the environment, health and wellness, philosophy and spirituality, creative writing and more. Session guides are available at the Hodges University Naples campus, the Headquarters Library on Orange Blossom Road, the Vanderbilt Library, the Central Avenue Library, or online at www.hodges.edu/lifelonglearning.
Classes at the Center are generously sponsored by Regions Bank, Moorings Park and Homewood Residences of Naples.
