Principia Lifelong Learning is open to all adult Christian Scientists and all Principia alumni, as well as their spouses.
Do you ever envy college students, who get to spend their days learning new concepts and thinking deeply about important issues? Wish you could come back to the classroom for another crack at the privilege of learning? If so, the time is now: Principia Lifelong Learning invites you to go back to college during Autumn Session.
Autumn Session is truly a “best of all worlds” opportunity. At the heart of the program are classes—stimulating, provocative, and thoroughly enjoyable—designed specifically for adult learners with no tests or grades and a minimum of homework. But of course, there’s more to college than classes! As an Autumn Sessioner, you’re a bona fide member of the Principia College community, so you can sample the multitude of student activities going on around you. Attend a poetry reading in the library. Listen to a student music recital. Cheer the woman’s volleyball team to victory. Fill your days as you wish, with your choice of classes, activities, and time to reflect.
Autumn Session students stay in the elegantly furnished Principia Guest House. In addition to your spacious room, the gracious living room and large deck are yours to enjoy—perfect spots for admiring the autumn colors. What's more, the kitchen is open 24/7 to handle any snack attacks!
Best of all, unifying everyone and every activity on campus is Christian Science. Principia students, faculty, and staff alike are committed to demonstrating Christian Science in every facet of the College experience, so classrooms, recreation, and relationships all provide opportunities to challenge limitations and break down barriers.
