Join gifted scholars in a beautiful setting at the entrance to the historic Hudson Valley just 55 miles from New York City. In the ambience of rural charm and Victorian homes, learn from instructors who are passionate communicators and entertaining lecturers as well as respected scholars in their fields. Enjoy a wide variety of topics in music, history, contemporary issues, politics, peacemaking, literature, the environment, and people who have changed our world. Be inspired as you absorb stimulating information, rethink old ideas, and gain new perspectives on the world around us. As a special highlight, we'll attend a cultural event.
