Ivy Tech Northeast announces schedule for IvyLiving enrichment classes during spring 2017

This spring, Ivy Tech Community College Northeast will continue offering IvyLiving classes—non-credit personal enrichment classes geared toward diverse community interests. Six IvyLiving courses will run at different times between March to May.

To determine which classes to offer, Aja Michael-Keller, the College’s director of Events, Enrichment, and Conferencing, reviewed similar course options in the region and found areas that could be expanded upon.

“We’re excited to offer IvyLiving courses that give the community the opportunity to explore creative endeavors or learn something new,” Michael-Keller says.
