With the hope that this message will reach an interested audience, and with the hope that I'm not breaking too many of the University's rules, I want to share a few details about an on-line course that should be of interest to Talossans. The first lecture starts tomorrow (2014-03-03), but the class material can be viewed at any time once posted.

"Great Books 101— Ancient to Medieval" is a free, eleven-week, not-for-credit online course based on the Hillsdale College core curriculum.
