New and returning members may learn more about all planned events at an open house on Tuesday, August 19, from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Aloysius P. Kelley, S.J. Center on campus.

Learning for a Lifetime is a group of intellectually curious individuals who enjoy being part of the University community. Membership entitles participants to audit one or two undergraduate courses a semester and attend monthly symposia, thought-provoking lectures presented by Fairfield faculty. In addition, Fairfield professors often lead trips of historical and cultural interest and a week of engaging classes is offered each June.

Learning for a Lifetime members may wish to audit one of several courses being offered this fall on a space-available basis, including "Ethics of Health Care," "Fairy Tales," "Jewish Interpretation of the Scriptures," "History of American Song" and "Civil War and Reconstruction."

With enrollment, members also receive a Fairfield University ID card, free parking, select discounts at Quick Center events, use of the Leslie C. Quick Jr. Recreational Complex (for an additional discounted fee), and access to the DiMenna-Nyselius Library and many other lectures taking place on campus or at the downtown Fairfield University bookstore each semester.
