School is in Session at DePauw's Elderhostel 2003

June 18, 2003

June 18, 2003, Greencastle, Ind. - "Classes are not in session over the summer at DePauw University, but this does not mean the learning stops," begins a story in Tuesday's edition of Greencastle's Banner-Graphic. "On Sunday a new group of 33 students arrived on campus through Elderhostel International. The group will take classes from DePauw professors and other higher education professionals until Friday. Elderhostel has been a non-profit organization since 1975 offering the worlds largest largest educational and travel organization for older adults."

Terry Noble, a 2003 DePauw graduate and coordinator of client services and special projects for DePauw Information Services, organized the Elderhostel program, which the University has hosted for about 15 years and draws people from across the United States. "Elderhostelers gain an opportunity to be in a small classroom setting and learn from academics at the cutting edge of their field," says Noble, who, as the story points out, "gives up a week of her vacation time to administrate the events."
