CLL Logo Now celebrating our 28th year!

Mid September Update

Our classes begin on Monday, September 13th.
Although we've had to close a few class because they reached maximum size, or because not enough students registered to reach a minimum, many classes are still available for enrollment.
Special Note: By request, we've revised the "Courses: Quick View" web page to show not only cancelled classes, but also the assigned UWF classroom numbers.

For anyone still considering enrollment, we have a webpage and an online help video to give you a preview of the registration process. To view the webpage, click on: September Registration PreviewTo view the 14-minute tutorial video, click on this link: Registration Video Tutorial.

Now that we can offer in-person classes once again, note that our Class Locations Maps  webpage has been restored and updated for our newcomers. You will find a map for every class that meets at a physical location. The Google-based maps are fully interactive; you can choose your starting point and get directions to any of the class locations. In addition, we've restored our information page titled "About Us." To view, click on the title in the row of links above, or click here: About Us.

Beginning on September 17th, the CLL will host a series of Special Events. They are presented at noon on each Friday during our eight-week semester. It is an opportunity for you to hear invited local experts speak on a subject in which they have special knowledge or interest. The program is open to the public.

The first seven events will be held in Building 1 in room 126 at the Emerald Coast UWF Campus. The concluding event, “Final Follies,” will be held in the campus auditorium. The latter event will consist of students performing in person, or displaying works they created during the current session.

Feel free to bring your lunch and enjoy the speakers!

What is the CLL (Center for Life Long Learning)?

Established in 1993 on the University of West Florida campus in Ft. Walton Beach, FL, the CLL provides interesting and stimulating educational activities for persons who believe that learning never ends. In addition to educational classes, the CLL organizes other activities that include local social events and occasional out-of-town trips.
Our organization is a Lifelong Learning Institute (LLI) and we are affiliated with the Road Scholar. There are more than 400 siimlar LLIs across the country.

Unlike most LLIs, the CLL has no paid staff; all our class leaders are volunteers who have acquired their expertise through their lifelong career experiences or favorite hobbies.
In 2004, our organization was incorporated as a 501 (c) 3 tax-exempt charity.

During normal times, when in-person classes are available, paying an enrollment fee of $60 establishes membership and entitles students to take up to four CLL classes.
Each additional class beyond four costs $10 each. There is no separate membership fee.
