​LIFE - Frequently Asked Questions

Class & Trip Information

Classes are presented by LIFE members, visiting experts, and other community members. They include discussion groups, lectures, field trips, music/theater events and more.
I am on a waiting list. How will I be notified if I can attend?
If space becomes available in a class or trip, we will call you. Often, the notice will come only 24 hours before a class. If you are waitlisted for a class or trip with a fee and a spot doesn’t open up, we will refund you shortly after the event has occurred.

Can a non-member join me on an excursion?
You may bring a non-member along on a trip if space is available. Members receive priority during registration.

May I bring an out-of-town guest to a class?  Yes, if space is available.

How do I find a map or directions to a class or trip?
Maps and directions are located in LIFE’s online Resource Library.

How do I propose a class?

Anyone, including non-members, may propose a class for the Curriculum Committee’s review. Planning for winter/spring classes (classes held January – May) occurs in late August – early November. Planning for summer/fall classes (classes held August – December) occurs in February – April. LIFE does not typically offer classes during the summer. Proposal forms are located in LIFE’s online Resource Library.
