SeniorUThe Winona State University Retiree Center will offer summer 2015 classes through Senior University.

Senior University is open to all senior citizens in the Winona community. The program is a series of non-credit, short classes that are peer-led by WSU faculty, retirees, and community members. The goal is to provide intellectual and cultural stimulation and growth to create lifelong learners.

“Mysteries of the Upper Mississippi” will include hands-on experiences in the WSU Flume Lab and on the Mississippi River, including a class aboard WSU’s Cal Fremling, as well as a foray into the backwaters of Aghaming Park. “Outdoor Adventures” will include geocaching, rock climbing, canoeing and kayaking, as well as high & low ropes course initiatives and elements.
