The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society, in conjunction with Southwest Minnesota State University in Marshall, announced "Senior College" is once again coming to Good Samaritan Society-Woodland.
Senior College started at Southwest Minnesota State in 2000 as a way to give senior citizens an opportunity to expand their knowledge in areas that interest them. The classes are taught by experienced faculty members who share an interest with their students in the topics. It doesn't matter whether participants graduated from high school or have a doctoral degree - the point of these classes is to learn and have fun. A special note this session is that the presidential election 2008 course will end election week.
Beginning Sept. 29, seniors will be able to take part in six-week classes offered once each week for two hours. These classes will be broadcast live via satellite and people may participate at Good Samaritan-Woodland, 200 Buffalo Hills Lane.
There are no tests or grades, just a chance to learn with others. The classes offered during the 2008 September-November session will be:
Monday, estate planning matters, instructor Larry Raad, director, Planned Giving, Good Samaritan Foundation; Tuesday, landscape painting, instructor Charlene Buescher, SMSU adjunct professor of art and professional artist; Wednesday, Pirates - The Romance and The Reality, instructor Marie Henriksen, retired university of Minnesota extension educator; Thursday, the 2008 presidential election, instructor David Sturrock, political science professor, SMSU.
