Message from the Director

Geoff Bakewell

Season’s greetings from the Meeman Center for Lifelong Learning! Even as one semester ends, we’re already preparing for the next: our first spring class begins in just six weeks (January 21). I think you’ll be excited at the possibilities. We are offering fifteen different courses, ranging from traditional favorites like literature and religion, history and politics, to new explorations in music, archaeology, mathematics, and chemistry. In addition, a number of courses venture forth from King Hall to add an outside-the-classroom component. Come explore our new science laboratories in Robertson Hall; check out the College’s excavations at the former Ames Plantation; drive the Memphis Women’s Legacy trail; or test your wits in a national Scrabble tournament. As usual, the courses are taught by some of the College’s finest faculty. So take a look at the accompanying information, and see what appeals: there’s something for everyone, and registration is now open. Finally, we’re pleased to present you with a special offer: sign up for three or more courses, and receive a 10% discount on your total tuition. Thank you for your support of the Meeman Center. Happy holidays, and best wishes!
