Open House on August 25 for College’s Academy for Lifelong Learning
Published on: August 08, 2012
Lone Star College-Montgomery’s Academy for Lifelong Learning (ALL), a program for the age 50-plus retired or semi-retired community, will host an open house on Saturday, August 25, 2012, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., in the Commons Building (Building A). The public is invited, and entertainment and refreshments will be provided.
The open house is a chance to learn about the more than 125 new and recurring ALL lectures and classes offered during the fall, as well as meet class instructors, socialize with other ALL members, and register for any lecture or class.
“If retirees or recent transplants to the area are looking for something to do that provides intellectual growth, the ALL program is the perfect match,” said Donna Smith Burns, continuing education coordinator at LSC-Montgomery. “It provides a chance to meet interesting people and learn about a variety of topics—all in an informal environment with no tests or textbooks.”
ALL is a membership organization filled with lectures, seminars, and discussions geared for the older adult interested in remaining “plugged in” to the academic, learning environment. The classes are relaxed, informational and cover a variety of topics such as art, computer technology, personal growth, languages, history, travel, and more.
During this election year, the ALL program is offering a special series this fall on the Constitution, with various lectures taking place September through November. Additional lectures on government, as well as history and the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, are also scheduled.
Most ALL classes are offered at LSC-Montgomery or Lone Star College-University Center At Montgomery, but some take place off-site at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital, Spring Creek Greenway, Jones State Forest, and Lone Star College-Conroe Center.
Each of the six colleges in the Lone Star College System offer continuing education for their older, active adult through the ALL organization. Course offerings and programs vary with each campus.
