Registration for Spring Classes at
Baltimore Free University

Registration for spring semester adult education courses offered by the Baltimore Free University, newly revived last fall at The Johns Hopkins University, will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Feb. 14, in Levering Hall's Sherwood Room on the university's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.

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.

The first incarnation of Baltimore Free University existed from 1968 to 1984. The university decided to bring back the program in response to growing demand from the community. Like its predecessor, the new Baltimore Free University features a wide array of personal enrichment, social issues and practical trade courses for a nominal registration fee: $10 for two courses per student.

More than 20 courses will be offered this spring, including poetry writing, documentary photography, yoga, ballroom dancing, socialism, drawing, art history, public speaking, urban planning, the nature of prejudice, civil liberties, training for childcare providers and debt management. The number of class sessions varies from one-time workshops to courses that meet once a week for several weeks.

The spring semester at Baltimore Free University begins Feb. 23 and ends June 11.

For more information, contact the university's Center for Social Concern at 410-516-4777.
