Senior adults can expand their social circles and broaden their horizons through the Academy for Lifelong Learning (ALL) at Lone Star College (LSC)-Kingwood.
The program offers a multitude of free and low-cost classes and activities for retired, semi-retired and working seniors age 50 and older. To learn more, ALL will host Open House events on Aug. 15 at the LSC-Atascocita Center and Aug. 22 at the East Montgomery County Improvement District. Both sessions are from 1-3 p.m.
“We offer non-credit courses, lectures and social activities for continued intellectual and personal growth. The curriculum offers a range of instruction that will capture the interests of all members,” said Pat Chandler, LSC-Kingwood continuing education director.
This fall, available courses will cover a wide variety of interests such as arts and crafts, gardening skills, photography techniques, health and wellness, technology, genealogy, yoga, literary discussion groups and many more.
“ALL provides enrichment for the mind along with a chance to socialize with folks that have a love of learning. My husband and I look forward to each fall/spring semester just to see what surprises they have in store for us,” said Sandra Reid, who, along with husband Clem, is an LSC-Kingwood ALL member.
Besides the many courses and programs offered, members also take monthly field trips to a variety of attractions in Houston. METRO transports groups to museums, various historical sites, parks, theaters, Rice University, and many other locations.
“Being a long-standing member of ALL Kingwood has given me so much pleasure: interesting classes, great friendships and fun people. I look forward to the many varied classes all week,” said member Steve Cady.
