Take a moment to remember your favorite college professor. Was he or she engaging? Was the subject matter far more enjoyable just because of who was teaching? Thanks to One Day University, you now have the opportunity to learn from the most remarkable professors in the country, as rated by their students on campuses across the country. I encourage each of you to take some time to attend, or if you are too busy to physically attend, than you can watch lectures live online or by recorded video – more on that below.
One Day University, started right here on the Upper West Side 12 years ago, has now expanded globally, to 61 U.S. cities, plus Canada and Mexico. Founder Steven Schragis’ mission is to bring together people who love to learn. Lectures range in topics from history, poltics and pschology to music, art and movies, but no matter the topic, audiences will be engaged and entertained by world-class professors.
Take for example the upcoming event on Thursday June 27th, The Life and Myth of George Washington and The Civil War in 15 Objects, taught by Louis Masur of Rutgers University, and Harold Holzer of Hunter College, respectively. “These two are truly among the very best lecturers I have seen in my life,” Steven said. “And I’ve seen close to a thousand.” They’ve been so successful, that the upcoming program is an expanded version of what they have lectured on in the past. These lectures will absolutely satisfy big time history buffs.
If this isn’t quit right for you, perhaps this would be the perfect Father’s day gift, or general gift for family or friends who would enjoy an entertaining educational experience. Now One Day University has a new option so that you absolutely don’t miss out. They’ve launched a digital online program so you can watch the events live from your laptop or phone – or a video on demand whenever you have time. Topics such as, What Would the Founding Fathers Think of America Today? Or, The Positive Psychology: The Science of Happiness, plus almost 200 more are available right now online.
