University Park, IL-(ENEWSPF)- Never stop learning could be the mantra of the students in The Knowledge Exchange, sponsored by Governors State University. Classes are offered for adults on a wide range of topics. Registration for winter classes begins on December 17.  Classes begin on January 18 and are held Fridays, from 10 a.m. to noon, and 1 to 3 p.m.

Course offerings include history classes focusing on the ancient empires and the wives of Henry VIII, cinema studies of stage plays turned into movies, and investigations into the Great Decisions of recent international affairs and life in the Soviet Union in the twenties and thirties.

The Knowledge Exchange is a continuation of the former Adult Learning Exchange (T.A.L.E.) with the same focus – to continue to offer unique and diverse non-credited courses at a reasonable price ($73.00 per class, $28 for an additional class). Classes are designed for participants aged 55 years and over and provide a relaxed and friendly environment, open to shared learning, and the free exchange of opinions and ideas. 

Classes are peer-led by a community of dedicated volunteers including GSU faculty and many former Exchange students.

Call Suzanne Patterson in the Office of Continuing Education at 708.534.4393 to request more information or to register. Governors State University is located at 1 University Parkway, University Park, Illinois, 60484.
