There is space left in the Brenau University Learning and Leisure Institute’s fall courses, which start Sept. 28.
Late registration for fall term classes will remain open until the first week of classes, according to BULLI Director Kathy Amos. Some classes, however, fill up quickly.
"We encourage people to call or come by the BULLI House to register. There are many classes still available," she said. "So far we have two classes that are filled to capacity. The Beginning Ceramics class and the PowerPoint classes are closed out. But if you join BULLI now, you can be at the head of the line when we open the class again in future terms."
The fall term runs from Sept. 28 until Nov. 13. Classes meet once a week for an hour and a half. To be eligible to attend the member-driven program, registrants must pay the annual dues of $130 plus $25 for each course. Those interested can register at the BULLI office at the BULLI House at 406 Academy St., Gainesville.
The fall catalog includes courses taught by leading professionals in the community as well as top faculty at Brenau University.
For example, Amos, who has taught computer courses for 13 years, will handle the course on how to relate to your machine; the Beginning Computer course is still open.
Illumination on relationships with people falls to Dr. Andrea Cook, pastoral counselor at First Baptist Church, who previously has taught for BULLI.
Dr. Barbara Steinhaus, chair of the music department at Brenau University, will teach a BULLI section on her academic specialty: African-American spirituals.
Dr. Randy May, the Richard and Phyllis Leet Distinguished Chair of Biological Science at Brenau, head of a new genetics research business initiative at the university and former lead scientist for two highly successful biosciences firms, will conduct a program that looks at both sides of one of the hottest debates ever: genetic influence on human behavior.
