Learn Something New

After spending the past year working with my daughter to get in to college, I felt like it would be fun to take some college classes again. Alas, with my family and work schedule, that is not likely to happen anytime soon.

Yesterday, I participated for the first time in an event sponsored by One Day University.  I initially found out about this event from an ad in the Washington Post. 

One Day University

One Day University offers one-day, no homework classes on interesting topics taught by top-notch professors from amazing univerisites.  For just over $200 I spent the day at one of the University of Maryland campuses listening to these professors and lectures:

Wendy Schiller, Brown University:            Political Science: The 2008 Election--The Most Important in Decades

Craig Wright, Yale University:                 Music: The Remarkable Genius of Mozart

Paul Olsen, Columbia University:            Science: Volcanoes, Asteroids and the Shape of Life on Earth

Shelley Carson, Harvard University:         Psychology: Understanding America's Depression Epidemic


The classes are offered on the east coast, roughly once a quarter.  Each session and location offers a variety of professors and topics.

I would highly recommend these courses. I would not have chosen all of these topics, but I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed them all!

Back in April I did a post "never stop learning"

I think it is important to keep your head "full" and your brain active. Especially when it comes to keeping up with our business.  NEVER STOP LEARNING!!!
