FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 10, 2023
Green Bay, WI – The Fall 2023 catalog for UW-Green Bay’s Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI) becomes available today with registration available in early August. Each semester more than 500 members take joy in learning together with their choice of hundreds of classes taught by current and retired faculty and community enthusiasts.
A searchable online course listing for Fall 2023 and a downloadable PDF includes all class options for viewing before registration opens Tuesday, August 1 at 10 a.m. Interested individuals are encouraged to register early for the best selection. Courses are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. You must join as a member to take courses.
LLI has created an exciting line-up of 194 in-person courses, live and recorded online classes, outdoor classes and tours. Course topics include arts, crafts, culinary, fitness, science and nature, and more. History courses like “Con Artists of Ancient Greece and Rome” debunk long-held myths. Members could also tour a 1950s windmill or learn how to quilt.
“Lifelong Learning is a wonderful opportunity to learn, grow, and connect with other great people in our community,” says program specialist Heidi Jahnke. “We have a variety of programming to suit everyone’s interests. I like to say, ‘If you can imagine it, we’ve probably had a class on it!’ Between classroom lectures, tours, zoom classes and hands-on courses, there really is something for everyone. Check out our catalog and join a thriving community of learners!”
