Coe College invites you to participate in 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 coffee and pastries from 8:45-9:15a.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.
The courses are open to all adults. The cost is $30 for a four-week course paid on the first day, or $12 per week. The closing luncheons cost an additional $8. There is no pre-registration, and seating is almost always available. For more information, call 399-8619.
In the event of inclement weather, consult local media outlets to find out if the day's forum will take place.
Thursday Forum gift certificates are available.
