Sheridan College will present “Saturday University: The Free One-Day College Education” on Feb. 8.
Members of the community are invited to go back to college for a day — minus the tests and late-night study sessions — as three professors from the University of Wyoming present lectures from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The day begins with free coffee and pastries followed by opening remarks.
The first session, “The thinking animal: A look back at comparative psychology in the 21st century,” will begin at 9 a.m.
The second lecture, “Making it home: Landscape photographs in the 19th-century West,” will begin at 10:15 a.m.
The final class, “Biodiversity inside and out: A look at life’s richness from Wyoming’s perspective,” will begin at 11:30 a.m.
The day will conclude with a lunch and conversation with the professors.
All activities are free and no pre-registration is required.
Saturday University is a collaborative program connecting popular UW professors with Wyoming residents sponsored by UW, the UW Foundation and the Wyoming Humanities Council.
