Some days, the stars align and you feel like a card-carrying member of Mensa. And then there are the other 364.
Why not up your smarts by spending one Saturday in October with some of the nation’s most noted scholars?
That’s the thesis behind One Day University, a traveling intellectual road show that features some of the country’s greatest professors from top schools like Yale, Columbia and Georgetown universities.
Think of it as the ultimate five-hour energy experience. For $239 (enroll early for $179), you can choose from ten lectures, ranging from the topical (“John F. Kennedy: Imagining a Second Term”) to the classical (“The Genius of Mozart”).
In spite of all this brilliance, One Day U is actually a thoroughly stimulating educational endeavor--minus the tests and homework.
A few classes we’re particularly excited about: “What the Internet Is Doing to our Children?” taught by Anne Nelson (Columbia) and “What’s So Great About William Shakespeare?” taught by Peter Saccio (Dartmouth).
One Day University is Saturday, October 26, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Hilton Anatole, 2201 N. Stemmons Freeway, onedayu.com
