Senior enrichment starts with curiosity and ends in lifelong friendships.

Designed for the retired and semi-retired, The Knowledge Exchange is a lifelong learning program that meets on Fridays for eight-week sessions in fall, winter and spring. Full-length courses, workshops and "Lunch and Learn" presentations as offered.  

Courses are non-credit and led by a team of dedicated volunteers made up of GSU faculty, alumni and community experts.  A volunteer Advisory Committee made up of Exchange class leaders and participants assist in overseeing the curriculum and sustaining quality programming.  Topics include: History, Law, Liberal Arts, Current Events, Foreign Policy, Music/Film, Philosophy and more with lively discussions. Lunch is a great time to know other Exchange students, continue classroom discussions and share classroom and life experiences.  Participants of The Knowledge Exchange enjoy a relaxed and friendly environment on the GSU campus and have formed a community of shared learning, social interaction and the free exchange of opinions and ideas. 

 

The Fall 2021 session will be taking place during September 17 – November 5 and will be in-person on campus with some classes virtually via Zoom.

 

On campus Course Fees: 

$73.00 per 8-week class
