Interested in a great experience with like-minded people for whom learning has never gone out of style?  Join the Academy for Lifelong Learning (A.L.L.) at Lone Star College-CyFair.

A.L.L. offers  adults, 50 years and older, a variety of leisure classes, lectures and informal activities. An annual membership fee of $20 (September 2010 through August 2011) entitles members to student discounts and the use of the college’s fitness center.

The fall session will include a diverse set of classes in areas such as gardening, travel, history, health care, photography, woodwork, art and many others. A few classes have limited enrollment, so register early.

Fall registration will be held 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Aug. 28 in the Conference Center on the LSC-CyFair campus at 9191 Barker Cypress.

WHY JOIN A.L.L.?

Member feedback shows they enjoy the variety of A.L.L. activities, the chance to meet new people and make new friends, to take day trips, to volunteer at various campus events and even to take advantage of extra perks at the college and in the area, such as discounts at plays, concerts, movies and restaurants. In addition, members have the opportunity teach an A.L.L. class or serve on the A.L.L. advisory board and/or committees.

“A.L.L. members have a unique opportunity to interact with friends, neighbors and community leaders with similar interests,” said Continuing Education Director Kenya White. “With new classes and trips put in the schedule every semester, A.L.L. has something for everyone.”

This fall, choose from some 80 different classes with topics from food to finance, arts to agriculture, history lessons to how to find happiness, just to name a few.

A.L.L. is starting its sixth year. Like LSC-CyFair’s ever-increasing student population, A.L.L. membership has grown from 25 members at inception to more than 450 members.
