New Frontiers fall open house set for September 15

Dan Scarpone, Publicity

New Frontiers for Lifelong Learning (NFLL), a peer-led, self-directed organization of over 400 members operating under the sponsorship of Mesa Community College (MCC), may be just what you are looking for. Educational and social opportunities happen by joining interactive groups, such as “America, the Gilded Age,” “Walking the Cather Trail,” “Continuing Piano Class,” “We Were Citizens – Now We’re Not,” “Theory of Evolution,” “Trailblazer’s Hiking” and more topics. Many classes meet one time for two and a half to three hours. There are no tests, grades or credits.

Other social opportunities, such as luncheons, tours, traveling, concerts, board and card games and theater productions can be enjoyed. Volunteer opportunities on the MCC campus and in the community are available. As an NFLL member, you are given an MCC student ID card which gives you discounts on campus and in the community.

An Open House for learning about NFLL will take place on Friday, September 15, 2017, at the MCC Downtown Center, 145 N. Centennial Way, Mesa, fourth floor, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Parking is available in the parking garage on the second and third levels only. An elevator or stairway lead to the fourth floor from the garage.

Classes meet at MCC campuses at Southern and Dobson, McKellips and Power Mesa Active Adult Centers at 247 N. MacDonald and 7550 E. Adobe and other locations.

Fees are $80 a year or $60 for each semester. After enrolling at the Open House, a member can register for as many classes that their schedule will allow. Registration begins September 19 online. Arrangements will be made for those without computers.
