Originally released March 16, 2018
Originally introduced at Spring Enrichment in 2016 as one of the many changes in the venerable program’s “reboot”, Spring Enrichment 2018 will be featuring 25 “mini-classes” on its schedule this May 16-18 at the College of Saint Rose. These hour-long sessions focus on a more limited topic than the regular, two hour sessions, are great opportunities for people interested in getting a concise exposure to the topic, want to take a quick course in between regular classes or during a time when they aren’t taking a session, or who want to experience Spring Enrichment without a two hour time commitment.
