Pizarro: Knowledge is free at San Jose State on Saturday

By: Sal Pizarro/Merc News

There’s another hearty offering of fascinating courses at “Classes Without Quizzes,” the free event Saturday that kicks off San Jose State University’s Homecoming Week.

The subject matter is a lot more interesting than Econ 101, with topics like “Lessons Learned from the Haiti Earthquake,”

“Bioengineering in the 21st Century” and “Know Mexico’s Son Jarocho.”

If that last one sounds unfamiliar, it’s a talk about the growing musical style by former Mexico City journalist (and SJSU alum) Lindajoy

Fenley. See what you can learn?

Nearly two dozen courses are being taught by SJSU professors and lecturers in three 50-minute sessions, followed by a barbecue lunch on campus.

Advance registration ends Friday at 9 a.m., so don’t delay. The course listings and registration information are at www.sjsualumni.com.
