Lifelong Learning

"One's work may be finished someday, but one's education never." --Alexander Dumas

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is proud to host NIU's chapter of the Lifelong Learning Institute, an active group of approximately one hundred members who are retired or at least 50 years of age. Members meet year-round for study groups, field trips, and the Notables Lecture Series.

Every summer, the College also hosts one-week residential Road Scholar, bringing seniors from across the country together with NIU faculty experts to explore topics as varied as the Mississippi River, U.S. Presidents, or the history of Iraq.
