Thursday Forum

Coe College invites you to participate in the Thursday Forum, a program for adults who want to extend their knowledge in an academic setting.

Thursday Forum lectures are held in Kesler Lecture Hall in Hickok Hall on the Coe campus.

Each session begins with registration and refreshments from 8:45-9:15 a.m., followed by the class until 11:30 a.m. The class meetings blend lecture, use of media such as film and music, and discussion. A luncheon is offered at the conclusion of each series.

Admission to the entire four-week course can be purchased for $30 on the first day or in advance. Admission to individual lectures is $12 per week. The closing luncheons cost an additional $8.

Payment can be made in person on Thursday mornings by cash or personal check. Credit card payments can be processed online only. Click here to pay by credit card or directly from your checking account.

In the event of inclement weather, consult local media outlets to find out if the day’s forum will take place.

For more information or to order gift certificates, call 399-8619.
