College announces schedule for IvyLiving enrichment classes during fall 2017

Middle School Cooking Camp

Hospitality administration major Keli Ralston demonstrates his over-the-shoulder flair for catching a fried egg in front of participants from IvyLiving’s Culinary Camp for Middle School Students this past April.

 

This fall, Ivy Tech Community College’s Fort Wayne Campus is continuing to offer IvyLiving classes—non-credit personal enrichment classes geared toward diverse community interests. Eight IvyLiving courses will run at different times between September to December.

To determine which classes to offer, Aja Michael-Keller, the College’s director of Events, Enrichment, and Conferencing, reviewed similar course options in the region and found areas that could be expanded upon.

“We’re excited to offer IvyLiving courses that connect the community with our instructors in new ways,” Michael-Keller says. “We love to showcase our programs, facilities, and excellent faculty. This is just another way the community can be a part of what we do.”
