Research has shown that a mindset of “lifelong learning” tends to facilitate positive habits that can lead to a happier life and stronger mental and physical states. Just as physical exercise strengthens the heart and other organs, mental exercise protects and keeps your brain young. Leisure Learning offers you the opportunity to energize your mind, make new friends and become part of a growing and vibrant community of lifelong learners.

UWF Leisure Learning provides an environment for lifelong learners looking to explore new or different ideas, skills, hobbies or viewpoints. Membership also provides opportunities to:

  • Explore the local area through day trips, private tours and exclusive experiences.
  • Expand your skill set in a variety of subject areas.
  • Participate in discussions across topics from current global affairs to psychology to changes and new developments in our local community.
  • Attend courses led by university professors, community leaders, professionals and other intellectuals in their fields.

“I love that the classes are short and cheap and don’t require a long-term commitment. Great way to meet people and learn about our community. You don’t have to be retired to join. Just meet the minimum age requirement of 55. You sign up for what interests you. Such a wide variety of classes. No homework or tests.”
