DENTON (UNT), Texas -- The Emeritus College program offered by UNT's Center for Achievement and Lifelong Learning is entering its fourth year with more than 400 participants, and will kick off the Fall 2012 semester with a free open house event on Aug. 14 (Tuesday), from 2 to 3 p.m. in the UNT Union Silver Eagle Suite.
