Hudson's popular lifelong learning program, SAGE Community, held in partnership with the University of Akron Institute of Lifespan Development and Gerontology, is growing in popularity among seniors from many areas of Summit and adjoining counties.
This community-based academic learning experience has become priority for the more than one hundred men and women who set aside eight consecutive Tuesdays each quarter for a full day of involvement in learning experiences that enrich and challenge their intellect within an environment that combines congeniality among peers, lunch table conversations, interesting lectures and lively classroom interaction.
Dr. Harvey L. Sterns, director of the University of Akron Institute for Lifespan Development and Gerontology, has been an advocate for later life education programs since the university began its first program over 40 years ago. "Learning in later life is one of the most satisfying experiences when new information is joined with years of experience," Sterns said. "Literature becomes more meaningful. History has a different perspective. Music brings out memories and new experiences. The excitement of an active learning experience never goes away. This fall, take advantage of the SAGE Community program and continue to grow."
SAGE Community is located at Christ Church Episcopal in downtown Hudson, and will be in session Sept. 27 to Nov. 15. While located in a church facility, SAGE is not affiliated with, nor constrained by, any religious tradition.
