For the Joy of it All: WC-ALL Annonces Spring Courses


Washington College Academy of Lifelong Learning (WC-ALL) is a peer-led, self-supported, autonomous department of Washington College that was created for adults of any age who seek intellectual stimulation without the requirements for academic credit. For the Spring of 1019, the theme will be,”for the joy of it”

Each semester the Academy offers 2 6-week sessions with 12-15 courses each session. Eastern Shore residents become members and register for as many courses as they wish for one all-inclusive fee. The instructors are community members who bring with them knowledge, skill, and passion about a particular subject or life experience which they take joy in sharing with others.

Showcase is Tuesday, January 15 at 4:00 PM at the Hotchkiss Recital Hall on the Washington College Campus. Learn about each course and meet instructors. Web or mail-in Registration may also be done there or any time until Friday, January 18.

Letters to Editor

  1. Penny Block says

    Please be aware that registration for WC-ALL Spring 2019 classes does not begin until Dec. 18. The link in this article will not be up and running until then. “For the Joy of It” is our tagline, not the theme for Spring 2019 as the article suggests. WC-ALL apologizes for any confusion!

  2. Could the cost for registration please be provided? Thank you.
