GENERAL MEETING: Tuesday, January 26, 2016 at 10 am
General Meetings are a time to welcome visitors, hear guest speakers and discuss club business. We invite women who are new or established residents of Greater Winston-Salem to visit us.
General Meetings are held at 10 am on the fourth Tuesday of each month* at: Trinity Presbyterian Church, 1416 Bolton Street, Winston-Salem, NC 27103, just off Silas Creek Parkway, via the Bolton Street exit.
Topic: Back to School – Without the Exams! Speaker: Wanda Duncan
Have you ever dreamed of going back to school, without the pressures of term papers, exams, and final grades? Our January speaker will introduce us to an opportunity to pursue fascinating subjects with dynamic instructors and mature, intellectually engaged fellow students with none of those old pressures.
Join us on January 26th to hear Wanda Duncan, Assistant Director of Lifelong Learning at Wake Forest University, describe the relatively new program of personal enrichment courses offered by the university.
Created by the Liberal Studies Program of the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences at Wake Forest, in conjunction with the Arts Council of Winston-Salem & Forsyth County, the program features some of the university’s favorite professors. Although many cities offer university-based lifelong learning programs, this collaboration between the University and the Arts Council provides a unique approach that sets Winston-Salem apart.
Classes explore a range of topics of global and personal relevance, tapping subjects as diverse as religion, history, law, music and psychology. In addition to regular courses, participants are invited to a reception with a special presentation. Last fall, for example, members heard Eric Wilson’s engaging presentation on Moby Dick: Why No One Wants to Read It, and Why Everyone Should.
Spring courses have not yet been announced, but Ms. Duncan will have complete information on upcoming programs and registration procedures at the meeting. Meanwhile, you can learn more about the program on Facebook (search “Lifelong Learning at Wake Forest University”), or at the website, http://lifelongwake.wfu.edu.
