Harvard on the Hudson

Looks like we missed one thing on Friday: this holiday season you can "give the gift of learning" at Hudson Valley Community College. They're offering learning certificates this year that recipients can cash in for credit or non-credit courses. The down side is that you can't sign up people for specific courses, they have to do that themselves ---but wouldn't it be great to pick one for them? For example, imagine enrolling your boring friend in Mortuary Science 130, also known as Embalming I. I've heard that the kids in the major refer to that class as as "Strip and Dip." And what about your friend who works in TV news? It's never too late to take English 101. Again.
