Linda Wyman's course in English Romantic poets is portable.

It's not on a laptop; it's fresh in her mind.

After wrestling with an illness that took the Lincoln University English professor away from her lessons last fall, Wyman has headed back to the classroom.

But she's not on campus, not this semester.

St. Joseph's Bluffs, her current home, and the university swiftly came up with a remedy to get Wyman and her students, mostly English majors, together two nights each week.

The residential care facility is excited at the opportunity to share its newly renovated site on West Main Street with the community. The students will have the luxury of learning in the facility's comfortable board room, complete with coffee and hospitality.
