Life Enrichment Program

The Life Enrichment Program offers intellectually stimulating non-credit courses for adults in the greater Columbus area who share a love of learning and/or teaching. Courses cover a wide range of subjects and are designed to meet the physical, intellectual, and social needs of the participants. Courses in the Life Enrichment Program are taught by volunteers from the community who are experts in their field. The fee for each term is $35.00, which entitles participants to take up to five courses each term. Classes are held during the day, early evening, and Saturday mornings, and meet once a week for 1 to 2 hours over a six week period and four weeks in the summer.
