Tri-Cís Encore Program Offers Learning Opportunities for Senior Adults Age 55 and Older

The Encore Campus program at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) begins a new session of classes Sept. 23 to enrich the minds and lives of those ages 55 and older.

The fall program runs every Friday for seven weeks at Eastern Campus in Highland Hills and Western Campus in Parma. Age-eligible students can enroll in one to six classes for one low fee of $99.

The course catalogue features more than 100 options on a wide variety of subjects, including art, cinema, computers, history, music, religion, science, yoga and more. Classes are taught by Tri-C faculty, retired educators and subject experts.

“Senior adults can get out and meet new people while learning new things and challenging their minds, with no homework or exams included,” said Suzanne Ortiz, who oversees the program.

Interested in classes but can’t make it to Encore Campus? Then check out Tri-C’s Neighborhood Scholars senior adult education courses, which take place at museums, parks and other locations around Greater Cleveland.

Neighborhood Scholars includes the Chamber Music Ensemble performance group; classes on ethnic foods and culture; and “Coffee with a Curator” sessions, which provide behind-the-scenes looks at exhibits and collections at University Circle institutions.

These alternate-site classes occur throughout the week and vary in length. Costs range from $15 to $65 per class.
