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.
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 June.
We'll conclude our anniversary year with a celebration event May 23, 2018 in Tsotsis Family Center Ballroom starting at 5:00 pm. Music by Dale LePage. Adult beverages and hors d'oeuvres. Contact the WISE office for details.
