“I started when it was at Brown University, then we came here and it has been a terrific venue for me to learn, to meet people. The quality and level of the courses are really phenomenal.”

“As recent transplants, it’s been a great way to meet people in Rhode Island. My wife and I started out doing the Theater Conversations course together. We’ve probably been in six sessions of that; it’s a great class, we love it and we’ve become friends with a number of people in the class. The Cell Phone Photography Club is my favorite; we have a great time here. My wife does all the art classes, everything she can get into. She loves the camaraderie and the help she gets from other people in improving her art. She likes the criticism, she likes the sharing – it’s really great.”
