The Lifelong Learning Program offers people of retirement and semi-retirement age an opportunity to expand knowledge and explore new ideas in an informal, noncompetitive environment.
Learning occurs in a pleasant social atmosphere in classes with one’s peers. There are no exams and no grades or credits. There is no previous educational requirement. Rather, the opportunity exists to interact with friends old and new. This is a time when you may fulfill many of your dreams.
Fall term begins in September with two five-week sessions ending in November. Spring term begins in February ending in April. The classes meet for one and a half hours in the daytime once a week for five weeks.
Prove to yourself and the younger community that intellectual curiosity endures and that learning and study provide unending sources of pleasure for those fortunate enough to be able to take advantage of them. You cannot do everything each session, but you can begin to do some of the things which excite and energize you. Select one or more of the courses offered, and engage in that ongoing work of learning.
This year some courses will be held in various areas of campus. Click here to go to a printable map of the campus, and when you arrive on campus look for the map kiosks located at the various entryways to campus and pick up a printed map.
