Green Valley Campus

Overview:

The Green Valley Campus is focused on the Green Valley and Sahuarita areas.  We have a primary site at the Pima Community College Learning Center (1250 W. Continental Road), with multiple classes also offered at CASA Community Center at La Posada, and occasionally rooms at Quail Creek and BMO Harris Bank. We are a welcoming, engaging, diverse, and supportive environment. All of our locations have ample free parking. Clicking on the map to the right will give specific class locations.

Classes:

Our standard  study group sessions are 90 minutes in length for one to eight weeks.  However, the field trips can last longer depending on location. We have a great diversity of study groups.

Our three most popular recent classes are:

  • Read The New Yorker with Us

  • Any of the many Religion or Ethics study groups led by Dan Putman

  • Any of the many History or UK-focused study groups led by Stephen Stillwell.

We tend to have a large variety of field trips to explore the area and offerings around us. Some trips have been: Sonoran Wine Tour, Humming Bird Banding, Xavier Mission, UA Mirror Lab, Glass Blowing, Sports Fishing, Geology of Madera Canyon, Gardening in the Southwest, Historic Canoa Ranch, astronomy basics, and Border Patrol.

Social:

We welcome new members and make sure that they have the opportunity to be introduced during classes. At the end of each semester, we have a social event with entertainment to bring everyone together. Members also participate in Dinners at Homes, where four to six members enjoy potluck dinners at a member's home.

Leadership Opportunities:

Members are always invited to join the committees that make our campus so wonderful: Curriculum, Marketing, Member Services, and Social Functions. The opportunity to be Classroom Hosts and work in partnership with our Study Group Leaders, is always a popular way to be involved. If you have knowledge and passion for anything you'd like to share, you could be Study Group Leader. Members are also actively involved in the planning and execution of events and social events.
