Lifetime Learning Center

The Lifetime Learning Center Senior Studies program is designed to engage older adults mentally, physically, and socially. Before COVID, the Lifetime Learning Center offered a combination of tours, classes, and lecture series to enrich students’ knowledge and appreciation of the world, the arts, and the community. Since April 2020, we have been offering all of our classes virtually on Zoom.
