This time of year, as invitations for graduations begin to pile up in my mail box, I'm awash in waves of college nostalgia. New books, new pens, new paper, and learning new things. Enter Emory University's Personal Enrichment and Lifestyle program. I'd never heard of this before, but it's a fantastic idea! You can take classes that are usually no longer than half a day, and cover all sorts of interesting subjects you've always wanted to know more about: Container Gardening, Clutter Bootcamp (for serious!), Decorating to Sell, Landscape Design, Decorating Basics, Kitchen Design, and even a Supper Club to explore great restaurants around Atlanta! I'm in!
Classes run through the summer on evenings and weekends, and costs range from about $80 to $180. You can register at the website. Happy learning!

Clutter Bootcamp? What an eclectic course selection!
Oh it's serious stuff. You have to bench press your clutter.
I want a degree in Supper Club.
Me too. Or maybe just desert club.
A degree in Supper Club. That is good. I have my masters in carpool as well.
Rice University here in Houston does something similar. I've been dying to take their wine course (which they do in cooperation with a large wine dealer here in town). Rice also has some "real" courses for those of us no longer in school, but I think I'd have trouble paying attention to a lecture on Middle Eastern politics right after work!
This is a great idea! I wish we had one here, as I have always wanted to know more than the basics about wine and etiquette. I believe there are online classes, but I would prefer to be in a class.
I would love to know if anyone has taken such classes and what their experience was like~
