Become a Student Again at UNCW’s Annual College Day

Monday, September 26, 2016

The UNCW College of Arts and Sciences, in partnership with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, invites learners and scholars of all ages to College Day 2016. 

On Oct. 29, registered participants can “go back to school for a day” and attend four classes of their choosing.

The idea of College Day came about 15 years ago as a way to showcase CAS to the Wilmington community. Supporting lifelong learning across the lifespan is one of the founding values of the college.

“This is an opportunity for UNCW to live out our teaching mission with a community beyond traditional college students,” said Richard Ogle, a professor of psychology and CAS associate dean. “Contributing to maintaining an engaged and informed citizenry is a vital part of CAS, and College Day is a big part of that endeavor.” 

Taught by UNCW faculty members, course selections for the day include offerings from the humanities, arts, social sciences and natural sciences on a variety of compelling topics. 

Registrants will check in between 8 and 8:30 a.m. in the Warwick Center Ballroom and pick up their class locations and other information. UNCW Provost Marilyn Sheerer will deliver welcoming remarks at 8:30 a.m. Each class session is an hour long, with the first beginning at 9 a.m. and the last at starting at 2:30 p.m.

Prices are $35 for OLLI members and $45 for non-members (includes a catered lunch). Those interested must register online or call 910.962.3195. Registration closes on Oct. 21.
