Lifelong learning at WLU Highlands
TRIADELPHIA - Older community members who dream about their college days have the opportunity to get back into the classroom Sept. 27 at the Community University at the West Liberty University Highlands Center.
The university is gearing up for its third semester of offering adults age 50 and older classes in subjects ranging from antiques to how to write a book or learning about land rights concerning the Marcellus shale formation.
"It's a really nice activity for people who are retired in our community," said Jeff Knierim, vice president for community engagement. "It's an opportunity for lifelong learning and to continue to challenge people intellectually regardless of your age."
There are no tests, grades or requirements to participate in the courses presented by volunteers from the community who are knowledgeable about the subjects they will teach.
Knierim mentioned a new course offered for the fall term that will take students off-campus for the first time to tour the historic homes of North Wheeling, including the Eckhart House, Arthur Phillips House and Hans Phillips House on Main Street.
The courses are designed to accommodate the schedules and needs of retired individuals. Classes are held weekdays and are almost all conducted at the Highlands location
None of the 20 courses offered overlap each other, so students paying a one-time fee can take as many courses as they wish throughout the week. Those interested in participating can pick up a brochure and registration form at the WLU Highlands Center, Ohio County Public Library, Moundsville-Marshall County Public Library and Brooke County Public Library. Community members can also visit the Community University website to download a registration form.
