The Free University of Stevens Square
is neighborhood-based open learning organization.
Our neighborhood is Stevens Square-Loring Heights
just south of downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.
The main means of publicity for the FUSS classes
is the SSCO Herald, the neighborhood newsletter
of the Stevens Square Community Organization.
The secondary means of publicizing the classes
is this home page.
Three meanings of "free" in "free university":
All classes are free of charge.
They are offered by volunteers from our neighborhood.
Anyone is free to offer a class.
No gatekeepers approve or disapprove classes.
Anyone is free to attend.
No registration---just show up at the time and place listed.

No classes were scheduled for Winter 2004

April, May, & June
The deadline for submitting course descriptions
is the first week in March.
