Welcome to WISE

The Worcester Institute for Senior Education (WISE) as Assumption College has built and sustained a lifelong learning community for a quarter century. Your WISE membership allows you to attend as many courses as you want, to enjoy special events,  and to travel locally, regionally, and internationally, all for half the cost of a Dunkaccino® per day.

The Fall 2018 Course Catalog will be available in July. 

From the May 2018 Assumption College alumni magazine.
