Age Friendly Taste of DCU Day 13th September‏

As part of our commitment to being an Age-Friendly University, DCU is running a one-day programme, A Taste of DCU, specifically designed for older adults. Our intention is to give participants a taste of the range and breadth of courses we offer, as well as providing an opportunity to visit the campus and meet with DCU staff and students. The programme will be delivered by leading experts in their respective fields and will be aimed at a general, non-specialist audience.


Participants will experience a diversity of academic, sports, cultural and social activities. The day will conclude with a reception in the Helix at 4.00pm. Participants will be provided with guidance and information on programmes and activities commencing in October 2012.


The event is free of charge for all participants. The detailed programme is attached.


For further information please see the link attached. We welcome you to bring this event to the attention of family members and friends.
