Quest Learning Community

A communal learning experience for adults
designed to expand one's intellectual and social world.


The principal activity of QUEST is the selection, organization and teaching of

a wide variety of courses. Classes run for both Fall (September to mid-

December) and Spring (February to mid-May) terms, and there is an eight-

week Summer session that runs in June and July, with just one class offered

on Tuesdays and Thursdays only from 10:30 a.m. until Noon.
