Registration begins Saturday, Oct. 1.
Registration for fall semester adult education courses offered by the Baltimore Free University will be held during a "meet the instructors" event from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1, at The Village Learning Place, 2521 St. Paul St. in Baltimore. Registration will continue through Oct. 5. For information, call 410-235-2210.
The registration session will provide an opportunity for enrollees to learn more about the informal non-degree- granting adult education program and its course offerings. Students will also have the chance to meet their instructors, many of whom live in the community or are doctoral candidates, professors and students at Johns Hopkins or alumni of the university.
Sponsored by The Village Learning Place and the Center for Social Concern at The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore Free University features a wide array of personal enrichment, social issues and practical trade courses for a nominal registration fee of $10 per course. Twenty courses are on the fall schedule, which includes a book discussion led by Pulitzer Prize-winning critic Tim Page of the Washington Post, lectures by master gardeners, and a workshop on Web design for small businesses. There will be an expanded six-workshop series on personal financial management, with sections concentrating on retirement, real estate and general financial fitness. The number of class sessions varies from one-time workshops to courses that meet weekly for several weeks.
Classes begin in late October and end in early December; actual start and end dates vary by course. Classes will be held in various locations, including buildings on the university's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St.; the Village Learning Place; SEIU Union Hall at 611 N. Eutaw St.; and Wydeye Cafe at 1704 Aliceanna St. The complete course list and other information is available online at www.jhu.edu/csc/archivedPDFs/BFUwebsite_Fall05.pdf.
