Learning is ForEver

Learning Is ForEver (LIFE) offers unique educational experiences to enrich and enhance the lives of its participants. Learning is a lifelong pursuit that opens minds and enriches lives. Sharing new ideas, challenges and experiences is rewarding in every season of life. Participants come from every walk of life, to learn together, exchange ideas, and explore the world.

The LIFE Program Committee members work in collaboration with PLU’s Continuing Education Office and the Office of Alumni & Student Connections to offer classes on a variety of subjects on the campus of PLU. Classes are open to the public, and the community is encouraged to attend.
