We turn not older with years, but newer every day.
Welcome back as we prepare for the new Spring Semester and a New Year! Emily Dickinson says it well—no matter what our age, we are continuously growing, learning, absorbing life’s experiences, and reinventing ourselves.
One aspect of reinventing ourselves at Sinclair was the transition to a semester schedule in the fall. The transition has gone well, but we still want your feedback. Please take the time to either contact us in the College for Lifelong Learning office or talk with your instructors to let us know how the semester went and if there are any issues that need to be addressed as we go forward. We appreciate your input!
Just a reminder, as with each term, there are three ways in which you can participate in lifelong learning at Sinclair:
- Enroll in any of the nearly 100 Seminars & Workshops, which are open to adults of any age.
- Audit academic classes tuition free on a space-available basis once you are age 60 or better at any of Sinclair’s locations, including the downtown campus and the Regional Centers, or at 25+ off-campus sites throughout the community.
- Take classes for credit, just as any other student.
As you look through this book, you will see favorite classes repeated, as well as new classes in every category of Seminars & Workshops. In addition, you will see some lifelong learning faces featured, including: an introduction to our new student workers; an article about one of our Advisory Board members who reached a milestone in his goal of helping the community; and a profile of one of our instructors who is 98 years old. Who says age has any limitations!
Remember, registration to audit classes begins on Monday, December 31, with classes beginning on Monday, January 7. For Seminars & Workshops you can sign up any time beginning December 1.
Thank you for your support, and thank you for being our students!
