Lifelong Learners

LSSU Elders is an association of Lifelong Learners. The Association is dedicated to provide continuous learning and social opportunities tailored to the interest of older adults. It provides personal growth, camaraderie and a sense of community. A wide variety of classes are offered each quarter. Typical schedules might consist of current events, historical subjects, religious, estate planning, geology, birding, horticulture, quilting, classical music, poetry, literature and book discussions, travelogues, trips and visits to nearby sites.

The LSSU Elders was started in 1994 with a mission to provide continuous educational opportunities and activities for people age 50 and older residing in this area. It is membership driven, and classes and activities are offered each year as a result of membership input. The Elder hostel Institute Network (EIN) is a voluntary association of Lifelong Learning Institutes across North America. For more information call 906-635-2802.

Here at LSSU the Elders have a lot to offer the younger students as well as the faculty.
