Have you ever wanted to learn the art of painting, dancing or writing? Do you want to start a fitness program or learn how to use new technology? Are you looking for a convenient place to meet new people and take fun classes? If so, the Community Learning Center can help you do all that and more.


Located in the Tom Steed Building on the south end of campus, the Community Learning Center provides a wide variety of classes for kids, students, adults and seniors.


Kids College enrollment opened April 1. Kindergarteners through high school freshman can enroll in summer day camps and learn everything from archery to zoology. Camps start June 3 and run through mid-July. Most camps are Monday through Thursday and participants can choose morning, afternoon or all day classes.


Children need to be enrolled according to the grade they will be in the fall of 2013, not their current grade. All activities will take place at Rose State College, Traub Elementary and Mid-Del Technology Center.



Some courses offered this summer and fall include Photography, Basic Oil Painting, Watercolor, Piano, German, and Quilt making. There are also several fitness classes available. Yoga, Zumba and Pilates are always popular options, but people looking for a less strenuous workout may prefer Chair Aerobics or Low Intensity Water Aerobics.


An Open Swim or Wellness Center Membership is also available and allows more scheduling flexibility. Members can use the free-weights, cardio equipment and gym floor which is open six days a week. Open Swim members can choose from several swim times throughout the week.


Community Learning Center summer and fall classes start enrollment May 6, including Emeritus classes, which are geared towards adults over 50 years of age. Emeritus students may take any classes, but if they choose to take a non-Emeritus class, they will receive a $10 discount.
