Join us virtually for Winter College – five days of lunchtime lectures capped off with culinary celebrations on Charter Day. All fun and no exams means this is the collegiate experience of your dreams.

In celebration of the 55th Anniversary of the Miami University John E. Dolibois European Center (MUDEC) in Luxembourg, join Luxembourger Nicky Krieger-Loos for a cooking demonstration of Luxembourgish dishes for Winter College Week!
