Join us for an educational opportunity of a lifetime! No matter what your interests, there are plenty of ways to get engaged with community members that share your passions.

Emeritus College Members enjoy many benefits: unlimited classes, social events, travel learn opportunities, experiential hands-on classes.

Here are just a few classes we are looking forward to in October:

Elder Law Boot Camp – Richard Barron

Laws and regulations surround us, not only politically but domestically, involving health issues, personal security, accessing and protecting assets, protecting yourself and your family and so much more. Join Richard Barron as he covers “The 7 Threats to Your Estate Plan” and how to protect and plan for the future. Richard Barron holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Southern Methodist University and received his Law Degree from Texas Tech University School of Law. Richard is a member of the Texas Bar Association, the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and Texas Chapter, Lifetime Member of the Disabled Veterans of America and Lifetime Member of the Military Order of the Purple Heart.

Classical Music Comes to America – Max Morley

Thomas Jefferson was an enthusiast for fine music as well as an accomplished singer and violinist. Join Max Morely as he reviews stories that are linked together by Americans like Thomas Jefferson who wanted to bring musical quality and musical sophistication into their communities. The stories are laced with interesting history and some musical lessons that are “off the beaten path.” Max Morley held three positions at Stephen F. Austin State University before retiring in 2009: 20 years as a trumpet specialist; 15 years in Arts programming and development; and five years teaching music history and literature. He holds the degrees B.B., M.M., and D.M.A. from the University of North Texas.

Universe or Universes? – Fred Busche

Scientific space investigations continue to lead to grand discoveries and open the doors to spectacular imagination about what “space” contains. New data being collected using the Kepler satellite that looks at the beginning of time, or “The Big Bang,” has muddied the waters with respect to where we came from and where we are going. How many dimensions are there, anyway? Join Dr. Fred Busche as he explores two primary theoretical approaches to explain the history of our Universe or Universes. Dr. Busche has a Ph.D in Geochemistry from the University of New Mexico that concentrated upon the study of Meteorites, Lunar Samples, and the potential presence of life on celestial bodies other than our own.
