Select Courses Offered to Area Senior Citizens

Posted on Friday, August 07, 2009 [3:04 PM]

COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Lindsey Wilson College is once again offering its Senior Scholars Program to area senior citizens. And during a time of economic austerity and belt-tightening, the price is perfect - free.

As part of the Senior Scholars Program, area citizens who are 62 years or older may take one undergraduate class this fall at no tuition expense. Senior Scholars must pay for books and supplies for their class.

The program was created by the Lindsey Wilson Board of Trustees as a way to show the college's appreciation to the region's senior citizens.

"Lindsey Wilson is pleased that we can continue to offer the Senior Scholars Program," said Lindsey Wilson President William T. Luckey Jr. "Senior citizens bring an interesting and important perspective to the classes, and our professors enjoy working with them."

This year's fall semester begins Aug. 17.

Classes offered in this year's Senior Scholars Program are:

■ "Art: Design and Color," 8-10:30 a.m. CT on Tuesday and Thursday;
■ "Christian Beliefs," 7:30-8:20 a.m. CT on Monday, Wednesday and Friday; or 3:30-4:45 p.m. CT on Monday and Wednesday;
■ "Elementary Spanish," 10:30-11:20 a.m. CT on Monday, Wednesday and Friday;
■ "History: World Civilization I," 2-3:15 p.m. CT on Tuesday and Thursday;
■ "Introduction to Latin American Studies," 1:30-2:20 p.m. CT on Monday, Wednesday and Friday;
■ "Introduction to Philosophy," 10:30-11:20 a.m. CT on Monday, Wednesday and Friday;
■ "Introduction to Women's Studies," 10:30-11:20 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday;
