WELCOME TO THE UCONN ADULT LEARNING PROGRAM


If you're a retiree interested in keeping your mind stimulated through ongoing education, you're in the right place.  If you haven't been here before, just click on this link to learn about the ALP organization and how you can become a member.  Our fall semester of classes will begin September 23rd.

If you missed our Fall Preview Meeting on September 8th, you missed the opportunity to preview the various courses with their presenters and to hear an interesting talk by guest speaker James Arena-DeRosa, President and CEO of Foodshare.   You can, however, still register for the fall semester.  A complete schedule and description of the 25 courses being offered are available right here.  Among our presenters this semester are eight college professors, a bioethic scholar, a Doctor of Education, two authors, an Artistic Director, a theater president and an Associate Justice of the Connecticut Supreme Court.

And whether you did or didn't attend the preview meeting, you may be interested in the photos taken at the event by our stellar photographer Ed Raymond.

It looks like it's going to be a terrific fall semester.  As you think about which courses might interest you the most, you might also think about . . . .

SMILING MORE

An elderly  man in Louisiana had owned a large farm for  several years. He had  a large pond in the back. It was properly shaped  for swimming, so he fixed it up nice with picnic  tables, horseshoe courts, and some apple and  peach trees. One  evening the old farmer decided to go down to the  pond, as he hadn't been there for a while, and  look it over.

He  grabbed a five-gallon bucket to bring back some  fruit. As he neared the pond, he heard  voices shouting and laughing with glee. As he  came closer, he saw it was a bunch of young  women skinny-dipping in his  pond.

He  made the women aware of his presence and they  all went to the deep end. One of  the women shouted to him, 'we're not coming out  until you leave!' The old man  frowned, 'I didn't come down here to watch you  ladies swim naked or make you get out of the  pond naked.' Holding  the bucket up he said, 'I'm here to feed the  alligator...'

Some old men can still think  fast.
