FGCU Offers First Courses in Naples' Heart Fax Building; Public Invited to Opening Reception March 24

FORT MYERS, FL - The Naples Center of Florida Gulf Coast University invites the public to learn about upcoming courses in the Renaissance Academy’s spring program and tour the newly renovated Heart Fax Building during a reception from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, March 24.

Course leaders will be on hand to discuss offerings. The spring program, starting on April 22 and continuing into June, has an exciting curriculum that includes discussion groups, lectures and roundtables.

The ground floor of the Heart Fax Building, located at 1010 Fifth Ave. S. on the corner of 10th Street, was renovated to accommodate the Naples Center. An anonymous donation valued at over $500,000 made the changes possible. The Renaissance Academy’s spring program will mark the first classes offered in the building and FGCU plans for three of its colleges - Business, Health Professions and Professional Studies - to also utilize the space.

FGCU created the Renaissance Academy on the premise that learning should never stop and that keeping the mind intellectually, creatively and culturally active enhances the quality of life. FGCU, an accredited comprehensive public university created to address the higher educational needs of Southwest Florida, is dedicated to providing a learning-centered environment that offers high quality educational opportunities. It offers the Renaissance Academy, on-campus and at off-site locations, as part of the University’s commitment to serving the region.

For more information about the Renaissance Academy, make a reservation to attend the reception or receive a spring program catalog, call the Renaissance Academy at (941) 590-1095.

Parking is available at the south entrance and refreshments will be served.
