One Day University
Why You’ll Love It
- Go back to college for a day and choose the five classes you want to take
- Professors from Yale, Georgetown, Brown, and 9 other top schools
- Interesting topics in current politics, arts, and science
Long before the 9–5 grind, you spent the day expanding your mind. Reignite that intellectual curiosity at One Day U, where Ivy League professors tackle subjects from the music of Gershwin to modern medical ethics.
Explore the science behind ESP. Catch up on the current presidential race. Or discover the art in architecture. One Day U gathers the nation’s top professors to share their expertise with you. After, you’ll have dinner conversation (and food for thought) that lasts for months. And unlike “regular” college, there are no tests, grades, or homework—phew!

The Maya said we’re due for a shake-up soon.
Turns out, they were right.

WHEN LOOKING AT THE present as an indication of where we’ll stand a year from now–much less a decade–feeling optimistic may not come easy. We look out to the universe and see an infinite, lifeless abyss enfolding upon our own small pocket of civilization, while the people we look to for guidance and information seem to be little more than straight-faced bearers of bad news.
Yet while we can’t predict what the future holds for our unending political discourses, we can look at how far we’ve come with technology in merely the last decade and realize the present we know now will, very soon, find itself memorialized in nostalgia. Here’s some technology emerging down the road that’s poised to change your life on a much greater scale than any outcome of a political debate.
