"The Meeman Center is a gathering place for interesting people who find life-long pleasure in learning; a place for new friendships as well as intellectual growth; the place we can’t wait to return to after the long summer break. I’ve taken all manner of excellent courses during the ten years I’ve been a steady student, but most particularly, Dan Cullen’s ongoing Examined Life class, with its provocative themes and stimulating discussions, has enriched my life immeasurably."

"I have been a student of Continuing Education at the Meeman Center at Rhodes for more than fifteen years. It has been and continues to be a high-quality experience. The consistent professionalism of the teaching staff . . . . the gracious and comfortable facilities . . . . the joy of sharing intellectual pursuits with others . . . it is one of life′s predictable pleasures for me."

"As a Principal Broker of a real estate investment, sales brokerage and property management organization, I review real estate sales contracts and leases all day, every day.
The Meeman Center offers courses that allow me to engage in a totally different thought and skill set in the evening.The discussions in class are very enlightening and will stimulate you when you listen to how your fellow classmates process the same information from the course and apply their life experiences to the class discussion."
--Marshall Gordon, CPM.
"I am not a native of this area and I am now retired. The courses that I have taken at the Meeman Center have been a invaluable addition to my intellectual and social life here. I think almost all of us benefit more from college the second time around. Thanks for all your efforts and for the time and erudition of your many excellent professors."
"The classes at Meeman have opened up a new world for me. Lore of Literature has prompted me to read books that I would never have chosen on my own. The class discussions led by Dunbar Abston and by the guest professors have helped me gain an understanding of the writers and of the writings that has thoroughly enriched my reading experience. An equally important component of this ′new world′ is the friendship that has grown among the class members from the sharing of our thoughts and opinions. Monday night at Lore is the highlight of my week!"
"When I moved to Memphis two and a half years ago, I was delighted to hear of the Meeman Center. There was a variety of offerings available, taught by knowledgeable and engaging Professors. Some of the courses I have taken are Scottish history, myths of Russia, and a number of different literatures. Registration is easy and the staff will order necessary books if needed. Come join us!"
