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.
