Want to spend a few weeks this summer walking in Thoreau’s footsteps, studying and discussing great ideas like he did? Want to get those HUMN credits under your belt before the fall semester starts? Then apply for Humanities 221 at Walden Pond, a 4-week course taking place in Concord, MA (minutes from Boston) June 19 – July 16, 2011. The deadline to apply is Wednesday, March 23.
To learn a little more about this unique course offering, stop by Milne Library and check out the display in the lobby. Just look for the poster of Mr. Thoreau. Or contact the course instructors, Profs. Ed Gillin and Mary Gillin, who will be happy to answer any questions you may have. But hurry! There’ll be plenty of time to smell the roses in Concord, for as Thoreau himself wrote, “Nature will bear the closest inspection.”
