Anyone who's willing to take the drive to Gillette this weekend can get in on a free day of college-level classes on Buffalo Bill, Super Heroes and Obamacare.
The classes are part of the University of Wyoming's outreach program called, Saturday University, or Saturday U, for short. The program is offered six times a year and travels between Gillette, Jackson and Sheridan. Saturday U won't be in Sheridan until after the New Year, on Feb. 8.
Professor Paul Flesher gave us the information when he appeared this week on our Public Pulse news talk show. He said Saturday's classes should be very interesting. One professor will give the history on how Wyoming's legendary Buffalo Bill Cody left his imprint on Italy.
Another will explore the science of super heroes.
Then another will bring students back to earth with a discussion about health care.
The classes are free and open to all ages. No preregistration is required. Classes start at 8:30 at Gillette College on West Sinclair Street. A free lunch will be served.
Organizers are expecting anywhere from 40-100 people to attend. Saturday U is made possible through the university's partnership with the state's community college's and the Wyoming Humanities Council, with support from the University of Wyoming Foundation.
