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.
