Simpson University for Seniors

REDDING, Calif. - Early registration is encouraged for Simpson University for Seniors’ October courses, which begin Oct. 6.

Classes meet from 10:20 to 11:20 a.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on Simpson’s campus and are open to adults of all ages. The monthlong courses are taught by university professors and professionals in their field of expertise, and there are no tests, grades or homework.

The following courses are being offered:

The Life of St. Paul: Traveler and Roman Citizen: Born into Roman citizenry, educated to the highest levels of Hebrew scholarship, Saul became infamous as a fierce persecutor of Jesus’ followers. After his sudden, dramatic conversion, his life became consumed with declaring Jesus of Nazareth as Messiah, traveling across the Mediterranean world, often under the most hazardous conditions, to become known as the Apostle St. Paul. Presented by Dr. Len Wallmark.

Outsmarting Your Smart Phone: This course will help you become more proficient with your smart phone. It will cover Android and iOS (iPhone) devices and platforms. Some content will also apply to using the iPad and some Android-based tablets. Features that will be discussed include contacts, calendar, email, voicemail, text messaging, Skype, FaceTime, “the cloud,” apps, music, photos, security, and more. Presented by Ryan Belong, Simpson University website administrator.

Two courses are offered each month through May. The cost is $95 per person, per course, or $145 for couples registering for the same course. Register online with a credit card at
