Guides are also made available through the St. Joseph County and Mishawaka-Penn-Harris Public Libraries.
Classes are held at locations throughout Michiana. Forever Learning’s main campus and office are in St. Therese Little Flower Catholic Church Parish Center. Classes are also taught at the Jewish Federation of St. Joseph County, Southfield Village, and Howard Park Event Center. Forever Learning is also offering a number of courses online.
The 10-week spring semester will begin March 4. Registration for all classes is available online beginning February 12.

The Forever Learning Institute, Inc., is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to improve the quality and dignity of senior adult life through continuing intellectual challenge, spiritual reflection, and social interaction. Classes are available to all seniors fifty years of age and older, regardless of race, color, religion, or ethnic origin.
FLI was founded in 1974 by Rev. Louis J. Putz, C.S.C., a retired professor from the University of Notre Dame who saw a need for lifelong learning opportunities in the South Bend area and surrounding communities. This beloved community service is experiencing unprecedented growth as more and more seniors discover the joys of learning and sharing their lives with their peers.
