What Is Lifelong Learning

To schedule a personal tour of Lasell Village, please call (617) 663-7044.

“Lifelong learning” is an all-encompassing term that generally refers to continuing to learn throughout your life, long after your formal education might have ended.

Lifelong learning activities could include education for personal or professional reasons, through self-study or courses and workshops, on your own or with groups. For many people, lifelong learning might lessen as they age, but at Lasell Village, it’s just the opposite!

We’re a community of lifelong learners – in fact, each of our residents commits to a minimum of 450 hours per year of learning and fitness.

And what better place to commit to lifelong learning than on a college campus? Lasell Village is one of the most unique retirement communities in the country, in that we’re located on the 13-acre campus of Lasell University.

Lifelong Learning At A University-Based Retirement Community

  • participating in educational events and courses at Lasell Village (with topics on literature, music, history, travel, art, and more)
  • community service
  • volunteer activities

“I love the people, the classes, and the special lectures, but most of all, I love the community at Lasell Village.”
