Class Offerings

Sponsored by the Office of Alumni Engagement, the Lifelong Learning Program offers people of retirement and semi-retirement age an opportunity to expand knowledge and explore new ideas in an informal, non-competitive 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. Select one or more of the courses offered, and engage in that ongoing work of learning.

Lifelong Learning courses are often held in various areas of campus. Maps and directions to campus are available, and when you arrive on campus look for the map kiosks located at the various entryways to campus and pick up a printed map.

*** UPDATE re: Spring 2020 Classes ***

Due to information received from the President's office, and based on our desire to protect the health and safety of our community from the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the decisions has been made to cancel all remaining Lifelong Learning spring classes and Lunch and Learns. A full credit will be issued to those of you who have already registered and paid for Session II. This credit may be used for future courses and will not expire. 

We look forward to seeing you in the fall, and in the meantime, stay well!
