Lifelong Learning

President Lowry talks with students in the Lifelong Learning program


Fall term begins in August 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. 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.
