A number of current and former St. Lawrence faculty members are teaching
fall courses for the Potsdam SOAR (Society of Active Retirees).
SOAR is a "lifelong learning group for adults," offering peer learning opportunities
for area residents of retirement age in a wide variety of topics. Professor
Emerita of Modern Languages Ruth Kreuzer is a member of SOAR's Board of Directors,
as well as the director of the organization's Web site.
Among the offerings for fall 2006 are The American Revolution, taught by
Professor Emeritus of Government Robert Wells; The Biological Basis of
Sexual Orientation, taught by Associate Professor of Biology Joseph Erlichman;
Exploring Religious Diversity in the North Country, taught by University Chaplain
Emeritus Theodore Linn; The Life and Work of Frederic Remington, taught by
Professor Emeritus of Religious Studies Daniel O'Connor; Presenting 101: Using
Technology, taught by Kreuzer; and Seeking God in Einstein's Universe, taught by
Associate Professor of Physics Aileen O'Donoghue. Many other professors and
former professors have taught courses for SOAR in the past.
