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.
