Union County College recently received a $10,000 grant from the Plainfield Foundation to support classes offered by the College’s LIFE Center in the city of Plainfield. The grant is for one year and provides for two courses being offered this semester and two courses in the upcoming spring term. To be eligible for the grant, the project being submitted must be for residents of Plainfield.
The courses being offered to Plainfield residents this semester are “Topics in Biology” and “Introduction to Drama.” These courses are held once a week at the Plainfield Senior Citizen Center and are offered for free to all senior citizens in Union County, age 62 and older.
The LIFE Center of Union County College brings college courses off-campus to senior citizens at locations throughout the county and at times convenient to them. All courses are free and may be taken for college credit. The courses are taught by Union County College professors. Since its inception more than twenty-five years ago, more than 3,000 Union County senior citizens have taken courses through the program.
