Expand Your Knowledge with the Center for LifeLong Learning

Are you 50 or older and looking for a way to expand your knowledge, learn about the world around you, improve your physical shape, or just wanting to get out of the house and meet new people?

The Center for LifeLong Learning at Lorain County Community College gives you the opportunity to continue learning in an informal, flexible and non-competitive college environment. “This is a chance to be a part of a learning process that is full of fun activities, humor, practical learning and wisdom,” said Jennifer Krupa, coordinator of LCCC’s Center for LifeLong Learning (CLLL).

The CLLL is a peer-led group serving older adult learners by broadening intellectual interests, physical activity and social interaction. “Our program creates a climate that rekindles interest and stimulates the thrill of lifelong learning,” Krupa said.

These non-credit courses do not have tests or grades, although some classes do have homework. Keeping the cost for each course affordable is always a high priority at the CLLL, she noted.

“It’s important that our programs are as accessible to as many older adults as possible,” Krupa said.

Attending classes is a great way to get together with friends or make new friends. “Some of our students attend classes with a friend, but many attend alone and later make new friends,” she said.

The CLLL offers a variety of classes including career enrichment, computer, financial, physical fitness, fine arts, art and crafts, economics, geography, history, literature, music, psychology, religion and much more.

“Many of our computer students start at the beginning with the basic computer course, which includes learning how to turn on the computer, and then advancing to developing PowerPoint presentations,” Krupa said.

Popular aspects of the CLLL program are the many local and long distance trips that are scheduled each term.

“We continue to seek educational experiences and look forward to developing new ideas into classes,” Krupa said. “If there is a subject you would like to study or teach give us a call.”

These non-credit CLLL courses are held on the LCCC campus in Elyria and its Learning Centers in Lorain, Wellington and Brunswick. Additionally, courses are also offered at Kendal of Oberlin, Wesleyan Village in Elyria and Sprenger Towne Center in Avon Lake.
