Elon University's lifelong education program just completed its tenth year this spring! It has been an incredible success and continues to improve each year thanks to the great work of our dedicated volunteers. The program was designed to offer non-credit learning opportunities to people ages 50 and older. The learning institute, called LIFE@Elon, features weekly presentations on a variety of different topics, conducted in an engaging format. There are 12 classes offered per semester (fall and spring) which are taught by current and retired Elon faculty and staff members, other area educators, and presenters chosen by our Curriculum Committee volunteers.
The yearlong membership fee is $150, which includes enrollment in all 24 sessions.
Examples of sessions examined in previous semesters are:
- A Short History of Jazz
- How Media Shapes Politics
- Music Theatre at Elon
- Stem Cell Research and the Future of Health Care
- The Drama of Our Oceans
- Post-Civil War History
- Cathedrals of Europe
