What do you want to learn?
Winter term consists of forty-two classes this year, with eight online and three off-campus. The variety offered is sure to spark your interest, from local history and architecture to travel stories from across the globe. Learn the art of improv theater, textiles, watercolor, or memoir writing, or test your knowledge of the weather or family genealogy. Winter term offerings will keep you moving, from snowshoeing to crosscountry skiing, from tai chi to resistance training. There is something for everyone! Visit our Membership Page for more details.
There are no grades or tests, and no pressure. Get involved in discussion topics that provide an in-depth outlook on something that interests you.

Class assistants are a vital part of our lifelong learning network at University for Seniors. Assistants take attendance for on-campus classes, read the weekly announcements, and assist the class leaders with microphones, handouts, and other general duties. It's a great opportunity to get more involved with the program and community.

Volunteer on a Committee
In order to provide a full range of services to members, the US office and the US Council rely on a network of committees.
