UofL Lifelong Learning program introduces new enrichment courses


    LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Beer brewing, organic gardening, consignment shopping and whiskey tasting are among 13 new enrichment classes introduced by the University of Louisville’s Lifelong Learning program for spring 2013.

    The program’s director, Anita Sturgill Block, said the classes are “all about living life fully” and that New Year’s resolutions often inspire people to sign up for classes in January.

    “People love to be a part of the latest trend and microbrewing is emerging as a fun and popular hobby,” said Block. “We also think our new class on the nuances of Irish whiskey will be popular this year.”

    UofL’s Lifelong Learning offers more than 30 traditional face-to-face classes in addition to more than 300 online courses. Most classes are held at UofL’s Shelby Campus and cost from $49 to $199, depending on the number of sessions and related supplies or books. New offerings for spring 2013 include:
