BGSU Firelands ElderCollege Kickoff to Feature Tribute to Elvis

Huron, Ohio – On Sept. 11, 2013, entertainer Walt Sanders will perform his tribute to Elvis at the ElderCollege fall semester kickoff at Bowling Green State University Firelands College.

With a fresh perspective on an age old tradition, Sanders sets out to revolutionize the tribute artist industry.  Sanders does not pretend to be Elvis, although he performs from his heart as did Elvis. There is a unique quality to Sanders that puts his tribute above all others.

The kickoff of the ElderCollege fall semester is set for Wednesday, Sept. 11, from 1:30-2:30 p.m., in the Cedar Point Center at BGSU Firelands. The event is free and open to the public.

ElderCollege is an independent organization supported by BGSU Firelands. With more than 150 members, it is designed to promote lifelong learning for adults 50 years of age and beyond from all educational and socio-economic backgrounds.

There are no academic requirements to join ElderCollege, and there are no tests or grades. Individuals simply attend for the enjoyment of learning.

Thirty-five classes are planned for the fall semester. Topics range from current technology, history, a variety of educational outings, and much more.

Individuals can enroll in ElderCollege for a fee of $70 per semester or $110 for two semesters, which entitles them to attend unlimited classes during the selected period.  Non-members can also participate by paying a minimal fee per class – typically $20.
