NECC’s CoOL Announces Fall Seminars
August 18, 2017 – 4:49 pm

Adults 50 and older who are interested in learning for the fun of learning are invited to check out the series of seminars planned this fall by Northern Essex Community College’s College of Older Learners (CoOL).

This fall’s seminars cover a wide range of topics from “Genetic Engineering” to “What is Comedy” to “Global Weather.”  Those interested are invited to attend a seminar showcase on Tuesday, August 29 from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Hartleb Technology Center on the Haverhill Campus, 100 Elliott St.  Each teacher will present an overview of his or her seminar so participants can decide which seminars are the best fit with their interests.

All of the seminars meet on a designated week-day for six consecutive weeks, unless otherwise noted, at the Haverhill campus or off-campus. The cost is $30 for each seminar and seminars run September to mid-October and late-October to November.

For additional information visit the CoOL seminar website or contact NECC’s Christine DeRosa, 978 659-1225 or
