Brazosport College’s ALLP classes provide fellowship and fun

Tue Sep 16, 2014

Brazosport College’s Adult Life and Learning Program is set to start a new semester, and with it comes plenty of opportunities for enjoyment.

ALLP, which is for adults age 50 and up, will begin its new schedule of classes on September 30. The classes run weekly for six weeks and end November 6. Registration is ongoing.

ALLP is geared toward helping seniors grow in a variety of ways by developing new skills and improving one’s lifestyle without the pressure normally associated with a college.

A total of 30 different classes are offered during the fall semester, ranging from calligraphy to ballroom dance to Tai Chi, just to name a few.

All classes offered under the ALLP program have a one-semester fee of $45, or one can enroll with a friend and each will receive a $5 discount. Participants can choose up to eight classes for a single fee.

ALLP is also offering 12 new classes this semester. A few of the new topics include fresh floral arranging, stained glass art, digitizing photos and the Old and New Testaments, among other new options.

The classes are held at the Brazosport College main campus.
