Common sense says that a university within your community should bring a variety of opportunities for further learning and cultural enrichment. At Marymount California University, the residents of our campuses’ surrounding communities are welcome to attend a variety of lectures, theater productions, musical performances, film series, and other unique educational events.
This winter, nearly two dozen senior adults enrolled in tuition-free courses through a program with Peninsula Seniors. The Mediterrania Homeowners Association held its annual meeting in the university’s café on a Sunday evening in January. And hundreds gathered at the separate events to hear author Kris Paronto of 13 Hours acclaim and author Natalie Baszile, who wrote Queen Sugar, a book Oprah produced into a TV series. In addition, the university also participated in the Rancho Palos Verdes HOA Expo event on February 15.
What’s more, on the first Thursday of every month, many friends of the university visit the Klaus Center for the Arts, at 430 W. Sixth St., San Pedro, for our gallery shows and musical performances.
