Oregon Extension

Each fall, the Oregon Extension welcomes 20-25 students to a rustic setting in the Cascade Mountains, where serious students can ask their deepest questions, read gripping and challenging books, wrestle with profound ideas in writing, and converse honestly and animatedly with fellow students and four faculty. Three-week classes allow students to focus on one subject at a time. With 3 or 4 cabin-mates, students buy and cook their own meals.
