Hutton House Lectures, a non-credit adult enrichment program housed in Lorber Hall on LIU Post, offers an outstanding array of lectures in the arts and sciences. Similar to a small liberal arts "college," but with no tests or homework required, Hutton House provides an opportunity for seniors or anyone else with volitional time, to take upper level courses from outstanding professors in art, music, philosophy, history, literature and political science, as well as many of the other arts and sciences.
This opportunity to "learn for life" simply for the joy of learning is what attracts almost 5,000 students per year to these classes which are continuously available on a quarterly basis. All courses are taught within the confines of Lorber Hall, former mansion of W.E. Hutton, II, which provides an easily accessible and ambient setting for classes.
A welcoming and supportive atmosphere of interesting students and outstanding faculty make this program a pleasure for all who attend, so much so that the 160-plus courses offered each year fill to capacity with waiting lists.
