Admit it: even though you love not having hours of required reading and homework assignments to complete anymore, you really do miss your college classes. The exchange of ideas, the chance to look at something in a way you’d never considered before, the opportunity to totally geek-out over a subject you love and know everyone else in the room shares your passion—it’s special, and it’s hard to find once you leave college.

This year’s Homecoming & Family Weekend is your chance to relive your classroom experience at UNC Asheville. A dozen or so great UNC Asheville faculty members will be offering special “Back to Class” sessions on Saturday, Sept. 23 on everything from Honeybees and Humans to Ancient Greek. So now there’s just one question left: how will you ever chose which class to attend?
