Lifelong Learning at Regis College (LLARC) is learning at its best. It is a community of older adult students involved in daytime study groups and lectures designed and taught by their peers, people who strive to continue learning. LLARC involves no tests, term papers, credits, or previous college experience. It is a chance to learn and to meet new people of varied backgrounds and interests. Our common denominator is eagerness to expand our minds in a relaxed and sociable atmosphere.
LLARC study groups for the fall 2023 and spring 2024 semesters will meet in-person on the Regis College campus and some will meet online via Zoom. LLARC members have the opportunity to engage in a wide selection of LLARC study groups Monday through Thursday. The Lunch, Listen and Learn program offered on Thursdays is an opportunity to listen to speakers on various topics during the lunch hour, as well as to socialize with friends, new and established. The strength of the LLARC program is in the opportunity to connect with others and the excitement of widening one's own horizons through learning.
LLARC values the volunteer leaders who provide a wide variety of study groups in a number of different fields. Their knowledge and leadership skills, as well as those of all the volunteers, are essential to the program’s success. LLARC continues to be integrated into the fabric of the university, taking advantage of professors, intergenerational opportunities, Fine Arts Center events, and more.
