CCU Lifelong Learning Society announces open house

Coastal Carolina University's Lifelong Learning Society celebrates 20 years of continuing education programs with an Open House and Convocation on Thursday, Sept. 16 from 2 to 4 p.m. on the second floor of University Hall. The event is part of Coastal's 50th anniversary celebration that continues throughout the year.

Founders, contributors and area residents are invited to the Open House, which will include an orientation for members and prospective members, including opportunities to visit the Lifelong Learning classrooms. Visitors will also learn about the 2004-2005 programs and benefits, and may register at a discount for non-credit courses offered at the main Conway campus, Myrtle Beach Higher Education Center in Myrtle Square Mall, the Waccamaw Higher Education Center in Litchfield and the Georgetown campus at 4003 S. Fraser St. Refreshments will be served, and Society board members will present a short convocation at 3 p.m.

The Lifelong Learning Society (LLS) is a University-based enrichment organization for adults. As part of its community outreach, Coastal offers the program as a place for adults from diverse backgrounds, skills and interests to investigate various topics and current issues. LLS is part of the University's Spadoni College of Education Center for Education and Community.

"We recognize that lifelong learning is an important part of life in the 21st century," said Sally Z. Hare, center director and Singleton Endowed Professor. "We know that humans never stop learning and that lifelong learning skills are a critical component of education in a rapidly-changing world."

Lifelong Learning Society board officers are Norm Whiteley, president; Rich Hair, vice president; and Curtis Harlin, secretary.

"We welcome all residents of our community, full-time or part-time, who just have a little curiosity and a sense of adventure," said Whiteley. For more information, call Lifelong Learning at 349-2665.
