Plus 50 is a life-long learning program under the Business and Community Education Department at Carl Sandburg College. Formally known as College for Seniors, lifelong learning opportunities have been offered through Sandburg since 1994.
Every year nearly 1000 people, age 50 and over, participate to either revisit an old interest, or develop a new one, or maybe just to be around like-minded people with a passion for learning. Learning opportunities are offered in two ways- classes or trips.
Classes cover all sorts of topics and disciplines, and are presented by CSC faculty, members of the community, or speakers from various organizations. Classes are offered in a comfortable and convenient setting in Building G (on the east side of the main campus) unless another location is specified. And don’t worry…homework and grades are not allowed!
