ST. PETERSBURG, FL (May 16, 2019) – Would you like to join a welcoming group of active lifelong learners? If so, the Academy of Senior Professionals at Eckerd College (ASPEC) invites you to take advantage of our Summer Sampler program: For just $100, you can enjoy ASPEC during the summer months of June, July and August and experience all we have to offer.
Located at Lewis House on the beautiful Eckerd College campus in southern Pinellas County, ASPEC is a continuing education organization with a unique blend of classes, lectures, social life, and activities for inquisitive adults interested in intellectual stimulation and camaraderie with like-minded individuals.
Our members come from diverse backgrounds, but they share a common belief that lifelong learning is a great way to engage the intellect for the pure joy of learning and to develop new friends and lasting relationships. Because ASPEC members have had distinguished careers in medicine, business, law, academia, science, the military and many other fields, classes become lively discussions as we eagerly share our knowledge and life experiences.
With over 40 classes to choose from each week – and without the pressure of exams or grades – ASPEC members find the freedom to explore topics they might have missed earlier. In our zero-stress class rooms overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, learning becomes fun. And if your muscles need a little stretching, we have chair yoga and Tai Chi. How about some more exercise? Try our kayak and canoe group. Did we mention our field trips, weekly social hour and dinner group opportunities? Bridge, anyone?
Of course, you are always welcome to stop in and say hello. For first time visitors, we might be hard to find on Eckerd College’s beautiful one mile of coastline. There is a link to a campus map on our home page (eckerd.edu/aspec) or just ask for directions at the gatehouse when you enter the Eckerd College campus.
If you’d like a personal introduction to everything ASPEC has to offer, please call Bette or Mary at 727-864-8834.
