Personal Enrichment

What is Personal Enrichment?

The purpose of the Personal Enrichment Program is to provide lifelong learning to meet individual needs and interests, and contribute to the community’s overall cultural, civic, and intellectual growth.

We offer a number of affordable, non-credit classes that allow students to explore their personal interests. Classes are held in a non-competitive environment allowing students to choose as many classes as they would like.
