Let your world expand with New Frontiers for Lifelong Learning

Caroline Cline, Publicity Chairperson

If you have an interest in learning about steps to a greener community, playing the piano, reducing risks for cancer, pioneer history of Arizona, pictures from a trip to Russia, new card and board games, women of the Bible, hiking on trails nearby, identifying birds, black thumb gardening, the world’s greatest structures, myths and science concerning the Northern Lights, scientific ideas that changed the world and many more topics, join New Frontiers for Lifelong Learning. So far 61 classes are being offered during the fall semester. Most classes meet for two hours one day. Some classes meet several times. There are also opportunities to attend social functions such as lunch at different restaurants on the second Friday of the month, a picnic in April, trips to interesting places, live theater performances or bowling.

After paying $80 for the whole year, a person can sign up for as many classes as their schedule will allow. The only additional costs would be for materials that would be needed for art classes. Classes meet on the three MCC campuses (Southern Ave. and Dobson Rd., downtown Mesa at 145 N. Centennial Way, and Red Mountain at McKellips Rd. and Power Rd.), East Valley Adult Resource Centers at 247 N. McDonald St. and at 7550 E. Adobe Rd., and many other locations.

New Frontiers for Lifelong Learning, sponsored by Mesa Community College, is a peer-led organization which offers the opportunity to expand your learning, increase your social resources, and opportunities to volunteer for the college and in the community.
