LINCOLN TOWERS UNIVERSITY


  Organized by Lois Spatz and Lila Belanoff, Project Open continues and
  extends its ambitious continuing education program. So many Lincoln Towers
  residents who are qualified professionals have volunteered to teach in our
  program that in this, our second year, we are able to offer a variety of
  short courses on different days and at different times.


  We charge a small registration fee, which covers materials and room setup. This fee is $10
  for regular, multi-session courses. Single lecture "pop-up" courses do not carry a registration fee
  but a $5 donation is requested. Bring a check made out to Project Open to the first meeting.

  Keep checking this site for information on new classes and Instructors. Watch for the flyer in your building
  for each class a month before it is scheduled to meet. You must contact the Instructor to enroll, using
  "@", not [at], in the Instructor's email address, or call the Instructor's phone number if provided. If the
  instructor does not provide a phone number and you do not use email, please enroll with the Lincoln Towers
  University Registrar, Eleanora Von Dehsen, at 212-875-0654 or email esvd[at]rcn.com, leaving name, phone
  number and course name.
