College students aren’t the only ones being educated on the Cal State Monterey Bay campus
What do Hamlet, Flannery O’Connor and music’s Romantic Period have in common?
They are among a diverse range of classes that will be offered in the spring through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute – OLLI – at California State University, Monterey Bay. The courses and speakers are specifically geared for those 50 and better.
In partnership with KCBA Fox 35, the university is producing a weekly television program, “Campus to Community.” It’s part of CSUMB’s commitment to serving as a catalyst for positive change – through education, outreach and public service.
At CSU Monterey Bay, all students must complete a capstone project in their final year, publicly presenting and defending the project or portfolio of work that demonstrates what they have learned. They do this each fall and spring at the Capstone Festival, which is organized by academic departments.
Cal State Monterey Bay President Eduardo Ochoa joined President Obama, the First Lady, Vice President Biden and hundreds of college presidents and other higher education leaders in Washington, D.C., on Dec. 4, to announce new actions to help more students prepare for and graduate from college.
