Many courses continue each semester with new ideas and discussions. Some new courses are added to the Fall list.

Included in this Fall's line-up are new courses:

  • Science for Seniors
  • The History of WWII
  • Moby Dick
  • Philosophies of the Good Life

Among the many continuing courses familiar titles are:

  • Managing your Money
  • Short Stories and Essays

  • The Play’s the Thing
PLATO has been offering courses since the organization began in 1987. The organization began as a way for retired people to continue learning and sharing what they know through courses set up by members who volunteered their expertise or interests with other members.

Now PLATO offers more than 100 courses throughout the year. Each Fall about 50 courses are offered. In Spring there are about 40 courses while the Winter and Summer sessions offer between 5 through 8 courses each.

Thanks to the many volunteer coordinators who offer these courses.
