Tri-C Encore Campus Fridays Opens Registration for Next Two Sessions
Winter and spring classes offer educational opportunities for adults aged 55 and older
The Encore Campus Fridays program at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) begins new sessions of classes in January and March to enrich the minds and lives of those aged 55 and older.
The winter program begins Jan. 24 and runs every Friday for seven weeks at three locations: Eastern Campus in Highland Hills, Western Campus in Parma and Westshore Campus in Westlake.
Age-eligible students can enroll in one to six courses for one low fee of $99. The 50-minute classes take place between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
A seven-week spring session will take place at the three sites beginning March 20.
Registration for both sessions — offered at the same costs and class times — opens at 10 a.m. Monday, Dec. 16. Enrollment is handled on a first-come, first-served basis. Many courses reached capacity during the Fall 2019 session.
The overall course catalog features more than 100 options on a wide variety of subjects including art, cinema, computers, history, music, religion, science, yoga and more. Classes are taught by Tri-C faculty, retired educators and experts.

Neighborhood Scholars includes tours to experience restaurants, landmarks and churches; “Coffee With a Curator” sessions, which provide behind-the-scenes looks at exhibits and collections at University Circle institutions; and hands-on classes such as jewelry making.
These alternate-site classes occur throughout the week and vary in length. Costs range from $10 to $79 per class.
