For central Island residents 50 years and better interested in learning, ElderCollege might just be the ticket.

Part of Vancouver Island University’s Faculty of Adult Continuing Education program, ElderCollege’s Learning for Life fall semester begins Monday (Sept. 12) covering topics from books, computers, art and health, to lifeskills, history, recreation and social sciences.

The Saturday Speaker Series on travel tales and tips features six guest lecturers helping participants prepare for their own adventures locally and abroad. The series begins Sept. 24 at VIU’s Parksville campus.

Annual membership is $15 and most course tuition is $38 per course plus materials. The membership fee allows participants to enroll in courses delivered in the Nanaimo and Parksville-Qualicum areas.
