Tri-C Encore Campus Fridays Opens Fall Registration
The Encore Campus Fridays program at the Western Campus of Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) in Parma begins a new session of classes Sept. 21 to enrich the minds and lives of those aged 55 and older.
The fall program runs every Friday for seven weeks. Age-eligible students can enroll in one to six courses for one low fee of $99. The 50-minute classes take place between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
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. The program also is available at Tri-C's Eastern Campus in Highland Hills.
“Encore Campus Fridays offers a taste of college without the stresses of homework, tests or books,” said Suzanne Ortiz, who oversees the program. “And aside from being educational, it’s a chance to meet new people with shared interests.”
