What is Living U?

Recognizing the many benefits of lifelong learning, Living Branches established Living U to provide older adults with opportunities to broaden their knowledge and learn new things. The best part is there are no grades! Living U is for your pure learning enjoyment. Residents and adults ages 62 years of age and older are welcome to participate.

Living U provides occasions for teachers and students to learn from each other’s stories, knowledge, and perspectives. Course content and discussion are offered for discovery, enrichment, and educational purposes and do not necessarily represent Living U or Living Branches.

Cost and Payment

  • 1-5 courses – $25.00
  • 6-10 courses – $45.00
  • 11 or more courses – $65.00

Certain classes and field trips have extra costs. Please note these in the course descriptions.

Unless the course has an extra fee, Personal Care and Health Care residents at Living Branches may take Living U courses free of charge. Please contact your life enrichment coordinator or Maribeth Benner to register.
