Tri-C Encore 55+ Adult Education Program Offers Learning Opportunities

The Encore Campus Fridays program at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C) begins a new session of classes Sept. 22 to enrich the minds and lives of those aged 55 and older. The fall program runs every Friday for seven weeks at Western Campus in Parma and Eastern Campus in Highland Hills. Age-eligible students can enroll in one to six classes for one low fee of $99. The 50-minute classes take place between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Encore also debuts this fall at Tri-C’s Brunswick University Center, where age-eligible students can enroll in one to three classes for $60. Classes run between 9 a.m. and noon. The overall course catalog features more than 100 options on a wide variety of subjects, including art, cinema, computers, history, music, religion, science, yoga and more. Classes are taught by Tri-C faculty, retired educators and subject experts. “Encore Campus Fridays is a great way to socialize while learning about topics you have always been interested in,” said Suzanne Ortiz, who oversees the program. “The opportunities are endless.”
