How The W makes college affordable

The W offers fall life enrichment courses

LEPCOLUMBUS, Miss. – The W's Center for Creative Learning will offer 39 non-credit courses as part of its community Life Enrichment Program this fall.

 

Classes will include Latin, technology, Shakespearean plays and fitness, to name a few.

Classes, which start Aug. 12-Nov. 15, meet once a week for one to two hours over two terms. They are held during the day, early evening and Saturday mornings.

Courses in the Life Enrichment Program are taught by volunteers from the community who are experts in their field. The fee for each term is $35, which allows participants to take up to five courses each term. Class sizes are limited by the space available.

Debbie Swartz, Life Enrichment Program coordinator, attributes the success of the program to dedicated volunteer instructors and community support.

She added, “The Life Enrichment Program on campus and in the Columbus community has seen tremendous growth.  We have gone from two terms a year to six terms a year.  Everyone who participants in classes enjoys learning and is eager to see what the next LEP term has to offer.”

Columbus Welcomes You

The town, which sits on the banks of the Tombigbee River, is widely recognized for its historic character. It is home to three National Register Districts and is nationally prominent for its annual Spring Pilgrimage, an award-winning event that showcases homes dating to the 1800s.

Columbus also has a rich literary heritage, both as the birthplace of noted playwright Tennessee Williams and its connection to Pulitzer-Prize winning author Eudora Welty, who attended The W. You'll be immersed in history and culture.

Nearby downtown has plenty to offer, with restaurants, boutiques, antique galleries, and the Rosenzweig Arts Center. Within walking distance of campus, downtown is a place to explore and enjoy.
