The Saddleback College Emeritus Institute is California’s largest, lifelong learning program specifically designed for older adults. We welcome you to join us as we enter our 40th anniversary year of providing over 215 sections of lifelong learning courses at over thirty locations throughout South Orange County.
TOP 5 BENEFITS OF LIFELONG LEARNING
1. IMPROVE YOUR HEALTH
Have you been looking for a free program that emphasizes health improvement? The Emeritus Institute offers specific courses for older adults in weight control, nutrition, and healthful living. Since students can repeat courses an unlimited number of times, the Emeritus Institute is proud to create a culture of healthful living in South Orange County.
2. DEVELOP A NEW SKILL
Many Emeritus Institute students speak proudly of their new-found abilities to converse in a new language, create beautiful digital photographs, fabricate custom jewelry, or even to write their own memoirs. Should you have an entrepreneurial spirit, you will certainly connect with other students who have found success in marketing and selling their new creations and abilities.
3. BUILD RESILIENT RELATIONSHIPS
A community of lifelong learners awaits you in the Emeritus Institute. Improving health, developing new skills, and learning together all create an environment where friendships begin and are strengthened each semester.
4. STRETCH YOUR MIND
We all mature and form opinions about money management, politics, philosophy and religion. Yet, being exposed to new ideas and concepts allows us to critically compare our notions with the theories of others to stretch our understanding of the world. Engage in discussion through the Emeritus Institute’s open and welcoming classes.
5. EXPLORE YOUR COMMUNITY
Field trips are an integral part of many Emeritus Institute courses, and are some of the most enjoyed activities by students. Deepen your knowledge of your community by visiting cultural centers, art museums and galleries, and festivals. Join your new friends on educational experiences throughout South Orange County and beyond.
