SLIPPERY ROCK -- Registration is underway for the March to May semester at the Institute of Learning in Retirement at Slippery Rock University.
Most “classes” meet in Slippery Rock. There are no books or tests. Some classes and trips are open to all; others are limited to members who have paid a nominal fee. Members also receive discounts on day trips and special events. Although one doesn’t have to be a retiree to join, most of the members are.
Among the offerings are “Women Who Helped Win World War II;” “Travel in the Canadian Mountains;” “the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier;” “John Wilkes Booth;” “the West Pittsburgh Swamp Killings;” and “Art Inspired by New York City.” Some classes have a local twist -- such as the history of Grove City College or looking at Moraine State Park as it turns 50.
Other classes develop new skills such as genealogy, stamp collecting and acting scenes. Still other classes offer tips on daily living such as care giving joys and challenges, common medical problems in cats and dogs, guaranteed income in retirement, preparing for medical imaging and foods for healthy aging.
Day trips this spring include a local alpaca farm, the police K9 training facility, the Ida Tarbell house in Titusville and the National Packard Museum.
Individuals can request a print catalog for the spring semester by contacting ILR at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 724-738-1604. The catalog also is available online at www.ilretirement.org.
