Grow and Learn in 2013; DVC Emeritus College Offers
Stimulating Classes For Adults
DVC Emeritus College provides an opportunity to take classes, exercise the brain, and meet interesting people without the stress of homework and tests. Emeritus College, a non-profit, fee-supported program of Diablo Valley College, is designed to provide affordable classes and special programs designed for adults to satisfy the desire to learn and grow. Research has shown that stimulating the brain is as important to well being as exercising the body.
Classes are held at several locations including Rossmoor in Walnut Creek, and Diablo Valley College and JFK University both in Pleasant Hill. Emeritus is offering a trip to Ashland, Oregon in May to see three outstanding plays and meet the actors, a tour of Sicily in September, and Yosemite by train in April.
