Registration is underway for the University of Cincinnati's Summer School for Seniors, a program marking its second year under the College of Evening and Continuing Education. Classes are open to students age 50 or older. Classes will be held July 16-20. The cost is $65 per class.
Most of the teachers for the Summer School for Seniors are University of Cincinnati faculty with special expertise in areas of interest to older adults. For instance, a class on understanding prescription medications is taught by Raymond Jang, a professor in the College of Pharmacy. Other subjects explore history, literature, spirituality, business, estate planning and computer basics. Classes will be held from 10-11:30 a.m. and 1-2:30 p.m. in the Edwards Center and French Hall on the main campus.
The Summer School for Seniors is a noncredit learning program that is open to people from the Tristate area. It's a summer complement to UC's innovative Institute for Learning in Retirement, which provides courses for students age 50 and older during the regular academic year.
To register, contact Karla Phillips, program coordinator, (513) 556-9170. Registration is open up to the beginning of classes, based on enrollment.
