Lindsey Wilson College is offering six classes to area senior citizens at an unbeatable price - free.

As part of Lindsey Wilson's Senior Scholars Program, area residents age 62 and over can audit one of six fall classes at no tuition expense.

Classes offered in this fall's senior scholars program include geography, marriage and the family, New Testament, Old Testament, women's studies and world civilization.

Participants in the senior scholars program are not required to have a high school diploma. All students must purchase books and pay for supplies for their classes.

"Our professors enjoy having senior scholars in their classes because they add a great deal to the classroom," said Lindsey Wilson Vice President of Student Services and Enrollment Management Dean Adams.
