LEWISTON — USM LAC Senior College is offering 27 classes to beat the winter blues. The one-day, two-hour classes will run Jan. 22 to March 2.

Love to travel? Students can visit exotic lands with people who have been there: Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Turkey, sub-Saharan Africa, China, Scotland, Prince Edward Island and New Zealand.

Is history an interest? Students can begin their own with genealogy, tour the Lincoln Highway, visit the mills of Lewiston, sample 1860s life, find the unknown Edward Little, visit Frank Lloyd Wright at 150, experience teaching in Europe.

Resolved to put life in order this year? There’s help for that with Advanced Healthcare Planning, Reflexology for Health and the Joy of Downsizing.

Just for fun, students can sign up for Take It Easy music of the Eagles, Free-Flowing Painting, no experience needed, or three separate classes devoted to games.

Up to four classes are free to Senior College members. The membership fee of $25 may be paid at the time of registration for the four courses and will extend until Sept. 1. Membership also includes free participation in four clubs offering activities monthly: dine around, theater, outdoor adventure and cross country skiing.
