College Classics

College Classics

College Classics is perhaps the most interesting of all Midland College classes to area senior citizens. The program, initiated in the Spring of 1989, provides a low-cost, non-credit opportunity for citizens 50 and over. The programs goal is to broaden knowledge in various areas of interest in an informal educational setting.

Classes are offered on the Midland College main campus and are taught by Midland College faculty and community volunteers who want to share their time and expertise in a variety of areas.
