Here's what LLI members are saying...
I've enjoyed making time for Harper's Lifelong Learning Institute for several years now. As all retirees know, our days are filled with lots to do, and Harper gives us the added advantage of new ideas, programs, lectures and an opportunity to meet like-minded people. I consider the membership fee that the Institute charges one of the best investments I've made.
I have enjoyed the LLI so much. It is providing for me the classes
I didn't get to take when I was younger and of course, there is no testing!
Harper's Lifelong Learning program has been a great place to learn more about the things I am interested in, to broaden my horizons, and to make new friends. I have really enjoyed the variety of courses. Now, if we only had a course about how to make more time in one's day!
