Henry Ford once said “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.”
Let us Stay Young!
The purpose of the Life-Long Program is to establish a self-sustaining diverse repertoire of intellectually stimulating, non-credit courses designed to elicit participation through social interaction and pleasurable learning. The courses will be offered weekly for a minimum of four to six weeks and held for 1 to 1.5 hours. These classes will be offered throughout the year to RFSA members, retirees and the general public.
RFSA initiated the Life-Long Learning Program in Fall 2014…with a pilot course held at the San Marcos Public Library that had 28 attendees. Since then, the RFSA has established a partnership with the San Marcos Parks and Rec Department to offer the Life-Long Learning courses through the San Marcos Activity Center's 55+ Program.
The LLL effort is coordinated by Dr. Marianne Reese and she also chairs a committee to assist in making decisions related to the program. Committee members include Dr. Don Tuff, Ms. Judy Row, Ms. Marian Loep, Ms. Becky Reese, Ms. T. Cay Rowe and San Marcos Recreation Program Specialist, Nick Riali.
Information about new classes will be sent via email to all retirees, alumni and the community. Information on upcoming course offerings and how to register will be posted on this site as noted below.
The Texas State Retired Faculty and Staff Association has partnered with the San Marcos Parks and Recreation's 50+ Program to offer courses for the Greater San Marcos Area.
