Author C. S. Lewis wrote “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” That’s why adults age 50-plus are invited to attend open house events for the Academy for Lifelong Learning (ALL) at Lone Star College to rediscover the joy that comes from learning.
Active adults will find more than 600 classes this fall, covering a wide-range of subjects including arts and crafts, gardening skills, photography techniques, health and wellness, technology, genealogy, Tai Chi, Yoga, literary discussion groups, history and many more.
“This is a great opportunity for adults who are interested in expanding their knowledge in all sorts of subjects with others who share that interest,” said Pat Chandler, system program manager for ALL. “There are numerous classes taught by residents in the community, many who teach at Lone Star College campuses. These classes are short-term, non-credit and last anywhere from a few hours to several weeks.”
The open house events will take place throughout August and allow visitors to check out classes scheduled and ask questions of staff members who will be on hand.
