Lone Star College
With 78,000 students in credit classes, and a total enrollment
of more than 90,000 students, Lone Star College (LSC) is
the fastest-growing community college system in the nation
and the largest institution of higher education in the Houston
area. Recognized for its commitment to student success and
credential completion, LSC leads a number of high-profile
programs designed to improve student success, including the
state-wide Texas Completes project and the College Credit
for Heroes, aimed at transforming military experience into
college credits for returning veterans. Dr. Richard Carpenter
is chancellor of LSCS, which has six colleges including LSCCyFair, LSC-Kingwood, LSC-Montgomery, LSC-North Harris,
LSC-Tomball, and LSC-University Park.
Academy for Lifelong Learning (ALL)
The Academy for Lifelong Learning (ALL) is a membership
community that enriches the lives of senior adults by providing
stimulating classes and seminars, social activities, skills
development, and opportunities for personal growth. One of
the fastest-growing trends in America is for seniors to move
near colleges and universities to take advantage of low-cost
artistic and cultural activities.
ALL memberships at each LSC campus are available for an
affordable annual fee. No prior education is required. No
grades are given. No tests or textbooks required. This is
learning for the enjoyment of learning.
As a member, you can help decide what is offered, volunteer
to teach a course, or help arrange day trips. You will also
receive advance notice of our many fine arts events and have
access to our library and computer labs.
ALL member benefits include:
•

20 percent discount (if age 60 or older) on some
community education courses;
• Access to college libraries and computer labs; and
• Campus photo ID cards.
Activities are designed with the busy schedules of seniors in
mind. Most classes are one or two hours in length and last
one to six weeks. Day trips are local, one-day outings. All

others about what is near and dear to your heart, all in a safe
and fun environment. An ALL staff member can give you more
details about becoming a volunteer instructor.

Important Information Regarding Classes with Fees
The ALL program offers a few classes that require an additional fee.
For these popular classes, there are special registration guidelines. If
you want to sign up for a class with a fee, it is important to do this
at the Registration Open House. Early enrollment in these classes is
not accepted. Since enrollment in these classes is on a first-come, firstserved basis, and the class fee is paid at that time, make it a priority
on the day of the Open House to go directly to the sign-up tables
when the doors open.
ALL membership for the 2013-2014 Membership Year is required to register for classes.

Thank You, ALL Volunteers
LSC-CyFair extends a thank you to all of the volunteers who help
make the ALL program and the college such a success. Without
the many volunteers helping with committees, instructing classes,
and organizing activities, the ALL program would not exist. We
appreciate our many community members who help decide class
selection and find our speakers. They share their knowledge and
enthusiasm about their areas of interest that helps us offer more
classes with a greater variety. We want to also acknowledge the
great benefits ALL brings to the campus; from helping with student
registration, to working the annual CyFest, to being a visible
presence to the student on campus proving that learning never
goes out of style.

Black Comedy – A Comedy
Lovesick and desperate, sculptor Brindsley Miller has embellished
his apartment with furniture and objects d’arte “borrowed” from the
absent antique collector next door hoping to impress his fiancée’s
pompous father and a wealthy art dealer, Schuppanzigh. The fussy
neighbor, Harold Gorringe returns just as a blown fuse plunges the
apartment into darkness. Unexpected guests, aging spinsters, errant
phone cords and other snares impede Brindsley’s frantic attempts to
return the purloined items before light is restored.

by a Khalif. In surveying the turbulent age of the Crusades, we will
examine the Sultanate of Egypt and the IIkhanid Empire of the Mongols.
From 14th to the 19th centuries, the so-called gunpowder empires
dominated the scene, the militant powers of the Timurid, Ottoman
and Safawid Empires. Moving forward in time, the Middle East
was jarred by the impact of European imperialism from Napoleon’s
invasion of Egypt onward. After the First World War, the Middle
East saw the painful emergence of modern nationalism in the 20th
century. The modern Middle East remains vexed by unsolved riddles.
How these people become modern without betraying their souls? The
ideologies such as socialism, democracy and fundamentalism remain
central. Class meets on the following dates: 2/5; 2/12; 3/5; 3/19;
