BGSU Firelands ElderCollege Kickoff to Feature Breakline
Huron, Ohio – On Sept. 9, 2015, the musical group Breakline will provide their spirited brand of entertainment for the ElderCollege fall semester kickoff at Bowling Green State University Firelands College.
Breakline started as three friends ‘kitchen pickin’ and traveling to winter festivals and has evolved into a unique presentational group. Playing traditional favorites, as well as bringing to the stage songs from the 20s’ and 30s’, the group appeals to a wide variety of audience members.
The kickoff of the ElderCollege fall semester is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 9, from 1:30-3:45 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 history to geology and national current events to local government. Several events include tours to areas of interest in the community.
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.
