Course: Improving Writing Through a Sentence-Composing Approach
Thank you to Don and Jenny for your enthusiasm, clear teaching instruction, creative approach in English learning. I love the course so much and I am grateful that I have taken this course. It is worth staying up to midnight, due to the time difference between the US and UK, to attend the course.

Course: The Pygmalion Myth
Great course. Particularly enjoyed the different art forms dealing with the same subject (classical verse, modern plays, films, even visual arts). Loved meeting at BMA.

Course: Elements of Creative Writing
This was an amazing course! I’ve taken a number of creative writing classes over the years at different institutions, and this was the best by far! Very clearly organized, full of practical information we could use in our writing. Hope to take more classes with Barbara Morrison in the future!

Course: 19th Century English Romantic Poets: Rock Stars of Their Generation with Lynne Agress
Lynne Agress was a marvelous instructor who deftly shares her vast knowledge and encourages her students to think critically. She is an asset to the Odyssey program, especially for those of us who want to read great literature with the benefit of some guidance.

Course: Finding the Funny with Alexandra Hewett
Ms. Hewett did an excellent job of encouraging students to expand beyond their comfort zones and achieve more than anticipated. She was always positive and constructive, an approach that the students emulated.

Course: The Art of Gustav Klimt by Joseph Cassar
I have taken several courses now from Dr. Cassar, and all have been absolutely excellent. It is truly amazing the amount of work, research, photographs and planning that he puts into his courses. It is almost a travelogue, and he takes great care to explain the comments he is making about the art and the artists, so that we students understand. Thank you so much. I look forward to more courses from Dr. Cassar.

Course: Dementia, Spirituality and Grief by Gordon Creamer
This was an excellent course, both in and of itself and as an important part of my pursuit of the Certificate on Aging. We were well guided by Mr. Creamer to experience (not just learn about) the spirituality and meaningfulness of both dementia and grief, and I am grateful. Mr. Creamer also made himself available outside of class time, and he always followed up each class as promised. The final project was especially rewarding–not only doing it but seeing others’ projects, too.
