Center for Lifelong Learning kicks off new term with free offering

Hodges University News

Classes for the summer 2013 term at Hodges University’s Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning begin June 11 with a free lecture series on creative writing. The sessions will be held on June 11 and June 18, beginning at 1:00 pm at the Hodges Naples campus, 2655 Northbrooke Drive.

Participants will learn how a few methods can keep them motivated and eager to write, and will leave with suggestions for at-home writing to continue thinking “outside the box” in their writing.

As a member-directed, multi-generational learning community, The Center invites area residents to participate in a diverse range of collaborative, life enhancing activities which are both intellectually and socially fulfilling.

“The Center prides itself on offering low registration fees and a wide variety of courses each semester,” said Christine Wheeler, Director of the Center. “We are constantly looking to offer different courses each semester, giving the participants a wide variety of choices.”

Annual membership in the Center entitles class participants to free registration in more than 150 courses offered throughout the year. The Center also offers a one-time free guest pass, allowing a participant to “test drive” a course offered there. 

Programs are planned and led by Hodges University faculty or notable industry experts. The broad-based curriculum allows for stimulating discussion groups, lectures, field trips, and workshops involving arts and literature, economics, the environment, health and wellness, philosophy and spirituality, creative writing and more. Session guides are available at the Hodges University Naples campus and online at
