Thursday, September 18, 7:00 p.m.

A little-known law allows Georgia residents aged 62 and up to enroll in any of the 31 colleges and universities in the University System of Georgia tuition-free! We'll have two speakers who are doing just that, plus a representative from the UGA Admissions Department to tell you exactly how to jump through the hoops to get yourself into a college classroom – without paying any tuition. The program will be streamed live online and can be watched from a computer, tablet or phone and archived for later viewing on Made possible through a leadership grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services called Reflecting, Sharing, Learning, awarded to the Athens Regional Library System and Lyndon House Arts Center. For more information, call (706) 613-3650, ext. 343, or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . In Appleton Auditorium.
