WELCOME TO THE UCONN ADULT LEARNING PROGRAM
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 . . . . . .
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.
