Alumni College Returns To Campus This Year
Designed to continue the lifelong
learning tradition that def ines the
Wittenberg experience, Alumni College
seeks to exercise both the brain and
body through engaging classes on
history, politics, culture and other
topics taught by Wittenberg’s esteemed
professors, while reconnecting alumni
and friends to the place that truly made
a difference in their lives.
This year’s program, scheduled for
June 5-8, will bring Beijing alive
as it focuses on this culturally rich,
historically significant city and the
Summer Olympic Games. Participants
will also have time to explore the
theme outside of class, tour the campus
and Springfield, and reminisce about
collective Wittenberg memories with
fellow alumni and friends throughout
For more information, call
Barb Mackey, assistant director of
alumni relations, at (937) 327-7893
