Think Spring

Spring is just around the corner.

Do you want to learn how to read art? We've got that. How about the Worcester Tornado? That, too. The early days of baseball, jazz, voting rights, Dracula and Rasputin, history from the perspectives of art, music, poetry,  and automobile travel? All of those topics and more. The Spring 2022 Course Catalog is now online on our WISE Courses page.

Course registration starts on December 15. You'll need to be a WISE member to register for courses. Go to the Join/Renew page to sign up.

The Worcester Institute for Senior Education (WISE) at Assumption University is a member-directed organization created in 1993 to provide lifelong learning opportunities for older adults.
