Fall LIFE-Learning Is Forever
July - December 2023




Learning Is ForEver (LIFE)  is a membership-based association dedicated to providing adult learners, the opportunity to expand their knowledge, engage in discussion, and make new friends. Classes will be delivered live in person and via Zoom. The majority of our classes are recorded and available to watch on our Canvas page. LIFE also offers a dedicated tech team who is eager to make sure you get the best online experience possible. 

Our program merged the four UW-Stevens Point campus programs into one lifelong learning program (LIFE, PAL, COE, and Learning in Retirement). Our program is open to all lifelong learners wherever you may be, whether that be Wisconsin, across the country, or internationally.

 Why Join LIFE?

We at the LIFE Program believe it is never too late to learn, hence our name, "Learning Is ForEver". With our class roster of over 100 live programs, you are sure to find something that interests you! 

You may ask, "Why should I 
join this program when I could just learn on my own?" While learning on your own is certainly something you should do, LIFE provides you the opportunity to learn from and interact with experts in their field who are always eager to answer your questions. You are also given plenty of opportunities to interact with your fellow LIFE members who share your love of learning. Our special interest groups are great for socializing! We currently run a book discussion group, a film discussion group, and tech questions group. All three are free for you to attend as a LIFE member! 

With our new virtual format, experiencing LIFE is easier than ever before! 
You can participate in classes from most anywhere in the world! Simply click the link you receive in your email each week and you'll be learning in no time! Why wait? Experience LIFE today!

 Spring Referral Program

Once again we are offering an opportunity for you to get the next Spring semester of LIFE for free! Earning the free membership is easy! All you need to do is recruit two NEW people to join LIFE this semester and write your name in the referral section or email us to let us know you referred them. After two NEW LIFE Members have joined, we will contact you about your free membership for the next semester. It’s that easy!

A few notes:
A “New Member” is anyone who was not a member during the last two semesters of LIFE (Fall 2022 and Spring 2023).
This deal does not stack, so if you recruit four new members you receive only one free membership and the gratitude of the LIFE Team.

Email uwspce-life@uwsp.edu with any questions regarding the referral program.
