Who We Are?
FELS (Friends of Encore Learning, Stockton), an affiliate of Stockton University, is a non-profit organization whose mission focuses on education. We offer a unique selection of entertaining, interactive and educational courses to South Jersey residents. Our members can sign up for courses that include documentary films, opera, short stories, comparative religions, and many other thought-provoking and relevant topics. The low-cost membership and course registration fees collected are used to offer scholarships to local students who want to achieve their educational goals at Stockton University.
What We Offer:
FELS provides participants a chance to interact and connect with other life-long learners and instructors in a hospitable, social setting. You meet people who share your interests while knowing that you are part of an organization that gives our youth the head start to successful careers a college degree provides.
One of our attendees said, I’m happy to have something stimulating to do through the cold-weather months in South Jersey – whether you live on the shore or on the mainland.
Over the past year and a half we experienced unique times. Unusual times. Unprecedented times. FELS adapted to the altered environment, and presented virtual ZOOM classes. The times they are changing again (hopefully) and NOW... Some folks wish to continue meeting virtually. Some want to gather in person. FELS will offer both ZOOM and in-person classes this fall.
Who Are Our Instructors?
Our programs are facilitated by university instructors and/or professionals in their field. Many have taught previous FELS courses and have loyal followers. One of our Stockton professors observed, I enjoy the fact that none of my students ask if what I’m talking about will be on the exam, and nobody is looking at their cell phones. Everyone here comes to learn something new.We hope to see you in virtually or in person in our courses this year.
