Lifelong Learning On Tap

Lifelong Learning on Tap is about connecting great ideas, great places, and great people. It's an opportunity for Adult students at GVSU to come together in a casual setting and get to know other students, staff, and alumni. 

It's also a great way to hear from experts in our community on topics relevant to you like finances, career transitions, balancing multiple life roles, and more.  Not to mention, it's a great way to learn more about the growing beer, cider, and distillery scene in West Michigan.


As you may be aware, GVSU will convert to remote teaching beginning March 16, at least through March 29.  As we transition to an online and remote setting, your health and safety are important to us so we will be cancelling our Lifelong Learning on Tap event on March 19th

We in the Center for Adult and Continuing Studies want to express that we are still here to support you during this time and if you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.  Although we’ll miss you this month, we’ve included some great links below and we hope you check them out.  And make sure you save the date for next month, April 16th Anchor Accolades.
