More than 100 people gathered Wednesday at Midwestern State University’s new Lifelong Learning Center.
The Lifelong Learning Center, housed in the university-obtained property at 2527 Hampstead Lane, welcomes those interested in non-credited education in a classroom setting on a variety of subjects.
Dr. Suzanne Shipley, president of MSU Texas, welcomed those celebrating the grand opening with a short discussion on the center’s mission — a place for people over age 50 seeking further knowledge and discussion, not pursuing formal advanced degrees.
“A lifelong learning center is about more than taking classes,” the Fall 2018 course book states. “It is also about developing a community of older adults who want to socialize and discuss intellectual topics with peers outside of the classroom.”
