Registration Opens for KSC's Cheshire Academy for Lifelong Learning Spring Program

KEENE, N.H., 03/05/08 - Keene State College’s Cheshire Academy for Lifelong Learning (CALL) announces registration is open for spring classes. CALL, founded in the mid-1990s, is an educational program for seniors and retired people in the Monadnock region.

Running March 21 to May 9, the 16 classes include introduction to world religions; drawing for beginners; current events in Pakistan and the Muslim world; myths and realities of foreign assistance; the craft of nonfiction writing; examining the literary, historical, artistic, and geographical history of Mount Monadnock; making cities “greener”; and the discussion of James Joyce’s Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man.

Courses, taught by CALL members and other local experts, are noncredit and nongraded. CALL participants take an active role in planning courses.

Classes, 80 minutes long, run weekly on Fridays, from March 21 through May 2. The $70 registration fee permits participants to take as many courses as they wish during the semester.

Students are free to change classes at any time. Registration is open until the first day of class.

A special one-day event is planned for March 14. The morning’s discussion focuses on the Middle East, climate change, and the state of the economy. The afternoon’s presentation, given by author and Yankee Magazine essayist Edie Clark, addresses personal essay writing. Cost for the March 14 event, held in the Mountain View Room in the Student Center, is $20 per person.

On March 21, KSC’s Office of Continuing Education hosts a 3:30 p.m. tea and coffee reception for instructors and those registered for the spring session.

Details about the reception and CALL information are available at KSC’s Continuing Education Office (358-2290). The office is located in Elliot Hall, Room 144.
