LIFE@WesternCarolina is a lifelong education program specifically designed to provide learning opportunities to adults ages 50 and over. In this program, learners will participate in non-credit educational presentations led by current and retired WCU faculty and staff and other educators from the region.
12 non-credit sessions will be offered each semester. Weekly sessions will meet on WCU's main campus in Cullowhee, NC on Wednesdays from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. in the Cordelia Camp Building.
Starting fall 2023, LIFE@WCU is offering two membership options:
Guests (non-LIFE@WCU members) may attend up to two weekly in-person sessions for a $10 fee. If a guest has attended twice and would like to attend more sessions, they will be asked to register as a member.
To establish a community of lifelong learners, age 50 and over, by offering participant-determined topics of interest that promote learning and community-university engagement.
The goal of LIFE@WesternCarolina is to provide a community education program for alumni, retired faculty, and community members over the age of 50.
