Welcome Back

Greetings from Queens University of Charlotte

Wade Alley, President. Senior Scholars at Queens

Dear New Friends,

Krista Tillman, Dean of Hayworth College for Adult Studies, Queens University of Charlotte

Greetings Senior Scholars, I am delighted to welcome you back! We are relocating this fall and are expanding our name to Senior Scholars at Queens. Beginning Sept. 13, Senior Scholars will hold meetings in a much larger and newer facility with ample parking and easy accessibility. We will meet at the Queens University of Charlotte Sports Complex & Conference Center on Tyvola Road. The Queens complex is next to the Tyvola Senior Center at Marion Diehl Park. Come check it out at an Open House Aug. 29, 3-4 p.m. We now will have closer ties with Queens University. Our membership will be able to enroll and/or audit an approved list of classes on campus at significantly reduced fees. We will be able to participate in grant applications that the university originates to increase our academic activities as well. There will be more information on this later. You will also receive e-mails from Queens University periodically about other events and activities that may be of interest to you. I look forward to seeing you soon. Wade Alley

As Dean of Hayworth College for Adult Studies at Queens, I am very excited to have the opportunity to partner with Senior Scholars and work together to serve our community. We have been neighbors for a long time, but I am thrilled to officially welcome you now into the Queens family. Beginning this fall, we are honored to host your weekly meetings at the Queens Sports Complex & Conference Center. This new facility seats up to 300 people in the conference room, and there are over 200 parking spaces. I expect you will be very pleased with the facility's site, location, accessibility and capabilities. We believe that this partnership will be mutually beneficial, as we both foster lifelong learning, fellowship and community. Not only do we welcome you to use our conference center for your meetings, but we also invite you to take or audit an approved list of classes on campus at a special rate just for Senior Scholars ($195 ). In addition to undergraduate classes, we also invite you to explore our various continuing education offerings in our Center for Lifelong Learning. Please see the letter I mailed you for more details. I look forward to meeting you at the Open House soon. Krista Tillman
