Learning in Retirement

Learning in Retirement link to catalog -  Fall Term 2016

Learning in Retirement (LIR) is an organization for individuals 50 years of age and above that provides a unique opportunity for cultural growth, lifelong learning, and recreation. LIR is member-led and university-sponsored. Members are involved in determining curriculum, recruiting new members, managing the budget, and developing social programming.

LIR at VSU began in 1996. It is open to anyone 50 or older who wishes to learn, have fun, and make new friends. There are no tests or grades, and no formal education is required. Membership is $75 per term (Fall and Spring), and entitles you to choose from among 90+ classes each term, most of which have no extra charge beyond your membership fee. (A few classes have an extra charge to offset instructor and supply costs.)

See links below for a class listing and registration form for the current LIR term, or call us at 229-245-6484 to be placed on the mailing list.

Parking is available adjacent to the RCCE. A visitor’s parking permit, good for the current LIR term, can be picked up with your registration confirmation or can be mailed upon request. If you forget or lose your permit, just stop in the Continuing Education office (Room 124) and pick one up. The LIR permit may be used to park elsewhere on campus while you are attending an LIR class or event. If you are visiting campus for something OTHER than an LIR class or event, you are responsible for obtaining a visitor’s permit from the VSU Parking and Transportation office: call 229.293.7275 for details.
