Lifelong Learning For Seniors

Enjoy the Benefits of LifeLong Learning

The Merion is uniquely situated to help you continue a life of learning, be it learning a new language, exploring new books, delving into history or taking an online course. It’s all about personal fulfillment and personal development. University towns like Evanston present an amazing opportunity for continuing education. Our residents are regular visitors to the Northwestern University campus, just four blocks from The Merion. As members of OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes), Northwestern’s senior education program, they engage in a wide-ranging and intellectually challenging curriculum, with activities in and beyond the classroom. In fact, Northwestern is the home of the National Resource Center that coordinates learning for all Osher Lifelong Learning Institutes. 

Learning has become such an important part of The Merion that two of our residents were featured in the Chicago Tribune and on WGN-TV leading fellow residents in continued learning. Click here to learn more about their story.

Join a community where you can seek knowledge for the sheer joy of it. Whether you pursue classes at OLLI or take advantage of the many stimulating clubs, discussion groups, or outings offered at The Merion, you’ll meet seasoned learners of all ages from all walks of life.
