New worlds have been opened through information gleaned from the courses offered and the plus of meeting many new friends. BILL is a wonderful resource for those of us who are retired from the workforce but certainly not from life."

I've learned a lot, enjoyed meeting some new people. I especially appreciate the convenient sites and low cost. The receptions are always fun. It has brought people from other communities to Lewisburg."

I surely enjoy my own part of the mix, bringing me back into the classroom that I didn't know I missed so much until I felt those bubbles of nervousness and joyful anticipation as I walked down the hall to the first meeting of each of the courses I've been teaching...."

The whole program (classes I have taken) has been enriching to me. I look forward to the days I have class. My friends and I often discuss what we have learned and been introduced to. People that I have spoken to really enjoy the courses. It is a positive and interesting part of their retired lives."

BILL provides expanded opportunities to broaden horizons, meet people with different backgrounds and creates a community of folks who learn from one another."

I feel that I have continued to grow and mature! Who would have thought how important that would be. For me, it has brought me together with other people my age and with my same interests. The people that I met are very special."

The BILL program has reignited my intellectual curiosity and has allowed me to examine subject matter I would never have without the program. It has provided an environment to expand and develop new friendships."

My circle of friends has grown!! The instruction and education on the arts and cultures has been fulfilling some lifelong dreams."

BILL has, as well as broadening my intellectual life, introduced me to a wonderful group of friends I would never have met otherwise. Lifelong learning with (now) lifelong friends-a perfect combination!"

BILL has given individuals in the region a rare opportunity to explore important areas and engage with others on a high level. One reason that my husband and I stay in the area, rather than move to a city, is the BILL program. "
