HOW DO I SIGN UP?

Registration for 2019 will open at 8:00 am on Tuesday, November 13, 2018. Scroll to top of this page to find the online registration link. The application only takes one minute.

WHY?

To encourage you to indulge an intellectual interest just for the fun of it. You never know where it might take you. (The idea came from Provost Sally Kornbluth, who as an undergraduate at Williams College, took a three-week, ungraded class outside of her major that changed the course of her career from poli sci to biology.)
