The Senior Learning Institute
The Senior Learning Institute, founded in 1992, was sponsored by CF to promote continuing education, learning opportunities, quality leisure time, and social interaction for residents 50 and better. The Senior Learning Institute is recognized nationally as a premier post-secondary educational program for the 50 plus learners.
The courses to be offered each year are selected by the Senior Learning Institute Commission after input from the membership. A variety of noncredit courses are offered each semester. Classes are usually held on campus during the day, Monday through Friday.
Some recent course subjects include Understanding the U.S. Constitution, Particle Physics, Global Economics, For the Love of Film, Spanish, Yoga, and Tai Chi. In addition to scheduled courses, the Senior Learning Institute hosts annual social events including the Spring Fling, December Holiday Party, and occasional field trips.

A six-month membership (October through March) option for $75 is also available. A few courses require buying books or supplies. All members are considered CF students and are accorded various student discounts and privileges. This includes access to Appleton Museum of Art activities, trips and tours at a student rate.
