People’s University Fall Semester Begins Sept. 10, Schedule Released

People’s University in Marshall County has announced their fall semester will begin Sept. 10 and run through Oct. 31. The university is a cooperative of education designed to offer Marshall County residents an opportunity to engage in lifelong learning, and the university offers all kinds of subjects from science and technology to the arts, history, health, and fitness.

Classes are open to anyone interested with only nominal fees – if any. Last year, 145 classes were offered by People’s University, and approximately 500 students took advantage of their unique learning opportunity.

Returning classes include genealogy, floral design, and a variety of computer classes. New classes this semester include “disaster college,” origami, and other classes.

The Marshall County Council on Aging invites everyone interested in learning to challenge themselves this fall by learning a new skill, revitalizing an old one, or simply by getting out to see what’s happening in the community.

People’s University is sponsored by Ancilla College, Culver-Union Township Library, Earthworks, Encore Performing Arts, Marshall County Council on Aging, Purdue Extension Office, Marshall County Historical Society, Plymouth Chamber of Commerce, Plymouth Public Library, and St. Joseph Regional Medical Center.
