And to set the record straight for poor (possibly maligned) Lauren: these “Communiversity” classes are sessions (usually only one for one evening) that can be taught by any person regardless of his educational background (I think). The “students” receive no credit and, other than the fact that they are held on a university’s campus, there is no connection with the university.
Which is why we see classes for belly dancing, psuedo-science such as “holistic” health (and other quack, alternative medicine classes), couples massage, and photography for pets and their people. It’s all in good fun.
I took this one at the University of Minnesota for credit:
ARTH 3575. The Art of Walt Disney in American Culture.
Walt Disney, his companies, and the influence of their products on 20th century American culture. Animation, architecture, city planning, the relationship between the fine arts and popular culture, and the creation of art under industrial conditions of collaboration and profit.
Talk about jealousy: I wish I’d be able to recieve credit for my class, much like Dangerosa did.
Oh, but here’s something almost as good! The class lasts not but one night (as I originally thought), but, instead, is stretched out over a few week’s time. This is soooo much better than the bowling league I joined a few years back. Well, the women will be cuter, I imagine. (And if it’s just a bunch of us nerdy guys showing up for the class, then the women on the screen will be cuter. Silver lining, folks, silver-friggin’–lining.)
