Class Offerings

Sponsored by the Office of Alumni Relations, 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.

For more information, contact Laura Tywater at 615.966.5733.
