Travel with the Professors (6 Week Series)
Join our professors on these cultural “armchair adventures” to international destinations where they have traveled often and have a keen knowledge and fondness. These evenings will begin with a presentation in the classroom and end with a social hour for discussion and a sampling of refreshments inspired by that region.
Six Week Course Schedule | Thursdays | 4:30 - 6:30 PM
