RHINELANDER - Nicolet College kicked off its 15th year of the Learning in Retirement this afternoon.
The college offers 30 different courses.
About 300 Northwood retirees belong to the program.
This is a learning experience, so there are no test or grades in any class.
Connie Griesbach is the president of this program.
Whether you're in your 50s or 80s, this program is targeting older people who like to learn.
"Nicolet college has a reputation for serving people of all ages and this is a great way to learn new friendships find new people in the northwoods who have similar ideas of your own or similar interest." said Griesbach.
Michael Shores is the curriculum chairman for the group.
He moved up here because he was drawn to his friends who are in the group.
"So it's not just the folks who are leading the classes," Shores said. "But it's the discussion with all of these interesting people that I think makes this a special place."
Classes will be held through out the Northwoods in Rhinelander, Tomahawk, Crandon, Three Lakes and Wabeno.
