At NMC's Life Academy, "Learning is forever"

Lifelong learning for age 50 and better, no papers or exams — just excellent discussions and activities. Participants rave about the stimulating and challenging experiences, with the added benefit of meeting others with similar interests. The choices are many, and new topics are added frequently. There are always several classes about to begin. Call (231) 995-1700 to enroll in a course. Ask about our LIFE Discount for Grand Traverse County residents age 62 and over.
