Fifty and Better

My name is Elyse, and I am a student in the Fifty and Better program. A friend told me about Fifty and Better classes a while back, and I have been addicted ever since! I am very interested in art history and architecture, so my favorite instructors have been Eleanor Schrader, Christine Maasdam, and Katherine Zoraster. I enjoy their classes and find that they are well prepared and have interesting takes on various topics. I also enjoy Sharon Boorstin’s storytelling and how she puts her whole heart into what she does. I love FAB because of the various options they provide and their flexibility. I have really enjoyed the bundles of lectures and courses because they have exposed me to other topics and instructors I wouldn’t have normally taken, such as the class with Cliff Wilcox on Gertrude Berg and Barbra Streisand. I also love that FAB is on Zoom; it is very helpful to not have to drive anywhere and to get the recordings if I missed anything.
