LifeLong Learning Society

The LLS Spring 2022 Semester is scheduled so that we may return to in-person classes, COVID permitting. However, if conditions deem in-person classes unsafe, we are prepared to remain online. For those of you who wish to continue online learning, select courses and Monday Afternoon Lectures will continue online and in person simultaneously. See brochure for details. Online classes will be presented via Zoom.

Christopher Newport’s LifeLong Learning Society (LLS) is a membership organization dedicated to people of retirement age who seek opportunities for learning in an environment of sharing and fellowship. There are no requirements as to previous educational experience – intellectual curiosity is the only admission requirement.

Managed by and for its members, LLS is sponsored by the Office of University Advancement and is an affiliate of the Elderhostel Institute Network. Through a variety of activities, including lectures, courses, study and discussion groups, lunches, dinners, and field trips, people from diverse backgrounds come together to share a common interest in learning.

If you like being challenged by new ideas in the company of other eager learners, we welcome you to join.

COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement

Christopher Newport University requires that all students enrolling for the fall 2021 semester to be fully vaccinated by August 1. Medical and religious exemptions are available; they must be requested and approved.

The LifeLong Learning Society is an important part of the Christopher Newport community. Many lectures, classes and events offered to our members will be held on campus at the Freeman Center, the Torggler Fine Arts Center and the Ferguson Center. The university is planning for a fall semester without the physical distancing constraints that have been in place until now; that will include facilities at the Yoder Barn.

Therefore, LLS members attending any in-person activities are required to be vaccinated, with the exception of approved medical and religious exemptions.
