    I am sneaking this post into the Philosophy, Religion, and Spirituality category for two reasons. First, because I define Philosophy as "the study of the best way to think about things" (which I think applies to this post). And second because I couldn't find a better category in which to list "self improvement information".

    So here goes. For those of you who may not be aware, most states offer some version of tuition-free college classes to anyone over the age of 60. I am lucky enough to live in a state where they will actually issue me a bachelors or even a Master's degree under this program. The only limitation is that I am allowed a maximum of nine credit hours a semester.

    I realize that many people have no desire to return to school. I however am fascinated by a large number of subjects about which I know practically nothing about. I turned 60 in May and I begin classes on Monday.

    I just wanted to put the idea out there in case anyone on the forum hadn't heard of it before.

    My local college has an aviation program so my first three classes are the ones I need to get my private pilots license. The simulator time and actual flight time are not included in the tuition remission program as these are considered lab fees.

    After that I am not sure what I will study next.

    PS - I have two accounts, so yeah, both those PWAC's are me.
