“Fridays with the Professors” is an informal group that meets irregularly on Friday afternoons from 1:00 to 3:00 pm in the Friendly Valley Church. The professors all come from College of the Canyons. Often entertaining and always educational, the topic may be from the speaker’s area of academic expertise, such as science, history, politics, or theater. It may be a hobby, such as a weapons collection or playing the bagpipes; or it could be an account of an excursion to Europe or climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
