Adventures in Lifelong Learning (ALL)
Since we never outgrow our desire for knowledge, Adventures in Lifelong Learning provides educational, creative and social opportunities through lectures, classes, focus groups, day trips and special events.
ALL members enjoy twice-monthly free lectures and programs on the UW-Parkside campus. These cover a wide variety of subjects: current events, health, history, travel, the arts, etc. Our speakers are experts in their fields and welcome questions from the audience.
For a small fee, classes are provided for in-depth learning. Offerings vary widely: Know Your Newspaper, Introduction to Film, American History, and What is New in Science. Music and theatre classes may include attending a performance. A Week of Learning, held yearly, focuses on one topic, for example, Humor Matters, Structures and Cities, All About Music, Many Ways to Tell a Story, and Crime and Consequence.
Focus groups are formed by members who have common interests. Ongoing groups explore gardening, enjoy hiking, play bridge, and discuss art and books. Members are encouraged to form additional groups.
Day trips add another dimension and fun to learning. Members visit museums and historical sites, see plays, enjoy symphonies, and take part in ethnic dining experiences. Fees are determined on a cost basis.
Members communicate through a newsletter called the ALL Points Bulletin (APB) and flyers that describe specific events. For pictures from our events and activities, visit the ALL Photo Gallery hosted on the Flickr.com website.
ALL welcomes guests and hopes they will join the organization in order to enjoy the benefits of membership. Guests may attend at most, two lectures and/or focus group meetings. In addition, guests may attend at most, two activities for which fees are charged, such as classes, ethnic dining or day trips.
