One of the advantages of growing older is the vast amount of knowledge we develop over the years. Knowledge that has been gained through practical experience as well as formal and informal learning. So just what is a University of the Third Age? It is a learning exchange for retired or semi retired adults, a place to learn, a place to teach, a place to continue exercising your minds. A U3A is a place where knowledge, ideas and life experiences are shared. There are formal and informal classes, talks and demonstrations and a great way to meet new friends.
