I heard a rumor the other day that a college in town here (Denver) is letting people who are over 60 attend courses for free! It’s Metro State College of Denver. This is so great! So, the 60 year-old (and older) students can’t get credit for the classes they go to but they get the chance to learn about anything their heart desires. That’s pretty cool, and I can’t believe I’m just hearing about this now. Not that I’m really the target audience for that type of information, you know, being like 30 years too young for the program and all.
I actually know someone who is taking advantage of this offer by learning Spanish, and soon she’s headed to Guatemala to practice her new language skills with a real live family and real live Guatemalans.
It’s so cool that this program is available, and that this college values learning at any age.
Pretty cool indeed.
T-Minus 29-ish years until I can sign-up and cash in on this free class thing.
Anyone know of any other colleges/schools that do this type of thing?
