Lifelong Learning - More Information
WHAT IS THE "LIFELONG LEARNING" CENTER?
The Lifelong Learning Center is academic program created especially for seniors, and is sponsored by Shelton State Community College. We organize and offer seniors lots of interesting short courses at a very reasonable cost. We keep our costs very low by being a non-profit, self-supporting program.
WHAT DOES OUR LIFELONG LEARNING PROGRAM OFFER YOU?
Every semester we offer dozens of short courses. Some are only a single session of a couple of hours. Other courses have several short sessions, for a total of about 10 or 12 hours of learning. The courses are taught by volunteer instructors with expertise in their subject. Courses include topics such as health, nutrition, arts and crafts, travel, use of computers, investing, starting a business, photography, gardening, budgeting for retirement, and so on. Classes meet at times convenient for you (usually during the daytime) at either the main Shelton State Martin campus or at the C.A. Fredd campus.
HOW CAN YOU JOIN US?
For a small fee of only $25 per semester, you can enroll in as many of our courses as you wish during that semester. You can register for our courses online, or call us at 391-2323 and we'll help you get signed up for the courses you like. Or, you can drop by our office on the Shelton campus on the Old Greensboro Road. We accept checks or credit cards. You'll join other great seniors for interesting, stimulating learning experiences! It's a super bargain, and lots of fun!
WE INVITE YOU TO WORK WITH US
We welcome you to join other volunteers who share their expertise and teach our courses. Will you also volunteer to teach for us? We can help you (if you wish) organize to teach a course and share your knowledge. Won't you please join our Lifelong Learning community, as a student, or a teacher, or both?
