Lifespring, an adult learning community, offers a broad range of noncredit educational activities for retired, semi-retired, and other adult participants. Lifespring’s goal is to provide diverse learning experiences for all its members, regardless of previous educational background. We recognize that many active retirees wish to continue to learn and grow and participate in an environment that is both social and encouraging. In this venue, we come together to share our knowledge and interests, and socialize with like-minded people.
Lifespring offers classes/courses, lectures, and events that provide opportunities for active adults and/or retirees to:
