The purpose of SCG CAM's Grand Learning is to bring intellectual enrichment and well-being to Sun City Grand residents through active learning activities. Benefits include stimulating your curiosity, engaging your mind, and building new friendships.

Remember to watch for your e-mail confirmation and e-mail reminder about your class. If you don't get them, your registration may not have gone through. Always look for "$0" Balance Due on invoice to show your payment processed. The most common reason for not processing are typos when you enter your credit card information. Look for red print explaining why it didn't process.

New class on negative interest rates:
The Interest Rate Limbo: How Low Can They Go? on October 17 at 10 am
"Every day we read news about lower interest rates. But interest rates that are actually negative already exist in many places around the world.
Yeah, negative interest rates means what you think it does: banks pay YOU to borrow money and you pay them to have a savings account or a CD. How is such a thing possible? Sounds ridiculous. Common sense says that it can’t be. But here’s a case where common sense and reality collide.
Financial experts (including some Federal Reserve potentates) are now telling us that negative interest is coming to America. Get ready!"
We have new additions to our "library" of The Great Courses, thanks to another generous donation. They are available in the Grand Learning office.
