College 4-A Day Gives Military Families A Boost

March 19, 2010
Special to Soundoff

      Join military spouses and dependents for a day of help, advice and fun during one of four College 4-A Day seminars coming up at Anne Arundel Community College.

      Spend a Saturday with other lifelong learners and enjoy a fun, stress-free and test-free atmosphere. Participants get lunch and a T-shirt, too.

      “SOS for Military Families” (CFD 310) on June 12 is led by Louis Aymard Jr., Ph.D., AACC professor of psychology and founder of the Parenting Center. He has 35 years of teaching and clinical experience with children and families. Discuss the challenges of raising children alone while loved ones are deployed. Participants will create a DVD for a deployed parent featuring their children.

      Three other seminars are scheduled for the spring and summer season:

  • April 10 – “Woman as Creator and Professional” (WMI 388) – Nurture your inner creative self and examine the challenges of women who pursue a creative profession. See the award-winning documentary “Who Does She Think She Is?” as it follows the lives of women in diverse creative fields. Identify the challenges and successes of a local artist, participate in a creative painting experience and a drumming circle.
  • April 17 – “Choices and Challenges for Midlife and Beyond” (COA 302) – Discover ways to find your passion, catch up on the latest techno-gadgets and talk about communication differences between men and women at any age.
  • July 31 – “A Day Just For You” (CFD 311) – Spend a day away from life’s challenges and chores. Pamper yourself with new ideas and experiences. Learn breathing exercises, create an art project, enjoy Japanese cuisine for lunch, design a floral arrangement and indulge in a hand massage.

      Each seminar costs $79 and meets from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. on AACC’s Arnold campus, 101 College Parkway. Advance registration is required. For information and to register, visit www.aacc.edu/weekend/college4aday or call 410-777-2325.
