About CE Open House

Experts say learning should be a lifelong endeavor, and that any type of learning you engage in will have far-reaching, positive influences on your life. The Community Education program at Harper College meets that need. Our non-credit classes allow you to acquire the skills you need and pursue the passions you love.

Our Community Education Open House ushers in the fall semester with small samples of what you can expect from our fall class schedule.

Noted brain surgeon Dr. Sanjay Gupta recently wrote a book on maintaining brain health. One of Dr. Gupta’s key points is, “doing new things is literally exercise for the brain,” and recommends activities such as taking a continuing education class and learning art, cooking, languages, writing, or other new interests. Our Community Education program can help you with all of that!

Visit with us on Monday, August 22, starting at 6:00 PM. We’ll be in the Wojcik Conference Center. Park in Lot 14. Refreshments will be served!
