“You build a retirement the way you build a career. Decide how much time to spend in volunteering, in physical activities, in keeping muscles toned…and how much time helping the mental apparatus stay toned."
Members enjoy both survey courses and in-depth studies in a variety of subject areas.
“The term ‘liberal arts’ connotes a certain elevation above utilitarian concerns. Yet liberal education is intensely useful” (George F. Will).
"Thirty years ago there were two kinds of senior courses: sewing and knitting. Now older adults are interested in the total spectrum of the liberal arts: history, art, literature, science, philosophy, mathematics, politics, world affairs and economics. They're living longer and therefore they're more energetic and alert."
As a membership-based organization, we encourage friendships and camaraderie. Because the courses are generally 8 to 10 weeks long, participants have many opportunities to get to know each other well. Social offerings provide a venue for extending the friendships forged in the classroom.
The Fall 2008 class on Hot, Flat, & Crowded discussed a variety of issues including "How to live a greener life" and their own "Energy policy."
