WHAT: Free College Day is a popular biannual event where the community can enjoy the breadth and depth of educational opportunities that students experience every day at Washtenaw Community College.
A variety of classes led by WCC faculty and staff will be offered during three sessions (9:30-10:30am, 11:00am-12:00pm and 1:00-2:00pm). Topics range from “iPhone Photography” to “Cells: The Smallest Living Unit” to “Spices: A Flavor for all Seasons” to “Arduino Projects,” which demonstrates the limitless ways microcontrollers bring projects to life. Some old favorites return, including “The Amazing Great Lakes and their Islands,” and new topics will be introduced, such as “Ghosts and Demons,” the paranormal experiences of a psychic medium and a ghost hunter. Other courses focus on cell biology, geography, evolution, craft beer, entrepreneurship, speed reading, languages, and more. A full schedule of classes can be found at wccnet.edu/freecollegeday.
