Welcome to WISE
The Worcester Institute for Senior Education (WISE) at 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 lists are available on our our WISE Courses page. Course registration starts at 12:00 AM (Midnight) on August 1, 2018.
From the May 2018 Assumption College alumni magazine.
WISE at 25
Here's a look at WISE's first catalog. We were known then as Worcester Area Institute for Learning in Retirement (WAILIR).
Click on the image to see all four pages of our original catalog with descriptions of the first eight courses. This coming year, we will offer close to a ten-fold increase in the number of courses. Watch for announcements of our Fall catalog in July.
Let people know that you're celebrating WISE's 25th anniversary. Shop at the WISE store for clothing, household goods, and memorabilia.
