What students have said about LLC courses  Kudos for the super selection offered.  How could you not be captivated.  Instructors were knowledgeable and helpful.  After using a computer for 18 years, I’m finally learning the things I never knew but needed. I have much more to learn!

Tell us your story… Bev Barlow retired five years ago from her position as Information Officer with the Saskatchewan Workers' Compensation Board. She has been a student at the LLC since 2001, taking one-half day off work each week to attend classes. Her specific interests are science and spirituality and the connection between the two. She knows the LLC made her transition to retirement a joy. In her own words, “I was able to explore topics I would never have tackled on my own and do it in the company of people eager to learn and willing to share what life has taught them.” “I would encourage LLC students to celebrate the opportunities the Centre provides by promoting it to family and friends. The old song says it all, ‘The more we get together the happier we'll be!’ ”

Sherrie Tutt classes get me up in the morning: Fitness courses for health; Computer courses to drag me into the world of technology; Writing courses to create a ‘new’ job, lots of other courses to pique my curiosity and enhance my health, and interactions with people of similar interests and concerns to keep me alert and engaged. I thrive in retirement because of the LLC.

Tell us your story this spring…and be entered to win great prizes including FREE courses and more to be awarded this fall…Contest starts in April with details to be revealed at the Heritage Lecture on April 2 and Open House on April 4. 3rd Annual LLC/SUG Writing Contest 2014 This year’s theme is “The Time of My Life” and entries can be:  Poems (12 to 24 lines)  Prose (350-500 words) Deadline for entries is Friday, March 28 at 4:00 pm with entries to be dropped off at LLC or emailed to SUG@uregina.ca .
