Brazosport College’s ALLP program offers challenges while having fun

Thu Sep 19, 2013

Brazosport College’s Adult Life and Learning Program is about to begin for a new semester, and with it comes an abundance of fellowship and fun.

ALLP, which is for adults age 50 and up, will begin its new schedule of classes on October 1. The classes run weekly for six weeks and end November 7. 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 29 different classes are offered during the fall semester, ranging from genealogy to clay sculpting to historical events, 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, home health perspectives and home massage techniques, among other new options.

The classes are held at the Brazosport College main campus on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. A minimum of six participants is required for most classes to run and others have limited space.

The class registration fee also enables participants other benefits, including use of the Brazosport College library and computers in the Learning Services area (formerly the LAC); free admission to all drama programs at the college; a 15 percent discount on lunch in the BC Commons during ALLP and admissions to the BC art gallery and The Swamp game room.
