9:00 - 9:50 summer classes

301: Russian History & Culture. Winston Churchill defined Russia as "a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma." In this class, we will attempt to peer into that enigma by learning about the early rulers of what became modern Russia and how they influenced Russian culture. We’ll experience some of the literature, music, and food. (This class will not focus on current events involving Russia.) Mary Anne McMillen will facilitate the class.

302: Astronomy Beyond Your Back Porch. We will look beyond what you can see without assistance to explore stars, galaxies, the Milky Way, nebulas, and the wider universe — using illustrations, photos, and some diagrams. No prior astronomy exposure is needed and no math is required. Instructor Jim Collins (Ph.D. in astrophysics) has taught numerous basic astronomy classes.

303: Sign Language. Learn your ABCs and some basic signs in order to be able to communicate with the deaf or hard of hearing and become better aware of this language. Led by Donna Hall and Lisa Ottalagano of Rock the Silence.
