Lifelong Learning

A SUNY Oswego experience for adults ages 50+

Due to the concerns with COVID-19, and following the directives from our state government, SUNY Oswego and social distancing practices, the office will remain closed until Monday, January 4th. Staff will continue to work remotely and may still be reached by telephone at 315-312-2318 or via email at during business hours, M-F 8am-4pm.

The Lifelong Learning program is an opportunity for older adults to engage in activities that will stimulate the brain, enhance the quality of life and promote overall health and wellness. Research has proven the positive emotional, mental and physical benefits of continued participation in learning.

Our mission is to challenge the mind, fulfill the spirit and engage the body of older adults in our community.  We are offering multiple sessions that include structured academic, artistic, health and social programs on our beautiful and welcoming campus.

Lifelong learning is important to us and our community

Seniors who have access to lifelong learning activities are many times happier, more productive, and healthier than those who do not. Studies have consistently proven that those seniors who regularly engage in Lifelong Learning activities (formal and informal) gain more than just a “brain boost”.

While Lifelong Learning programs certainly stimulate and increase cognitive abilities, continued learning also plays an important role in a senior’s physical health and emotional wellbeing. Seniors who participate in structured and ongoing educational pursuits are often more cognizant of practicing healthier lifestyles. Lifelong Learning programs can also combat isolation, loneliness, and depression often observed in aging seniors, satisfying the socialization aspect.

By implementing a Lifelong Learning Program we can satisfy many different aspects of the community. Healthy seniors will result in reduced healthcare costs, enhanced quality of life and a greater contribution to the community through civic participation such as volunteering. SUNY Oswego’s Lifelong Learning Program will extend beyond the boundaries of the local community, thus boosting the local economy.
