  1. Retiree (straight) from Mn . wants to share housing in a retirement city or on a college campus, interact with college activities/ communities and classes and have a great social life; prefer with other teachers.
  2. Please note that since its founding in 2005, Kendal at Granville has been deeply connected to Denison University (Granville, OH), and new collaboration efforts include hosting two Denison students as Artists in Residence this summer. The AIR students receive room and board in exchange for arts programming for residents of this Life Plan community.
  3. Would like more info re living in the senior program at Notre Dame. Have two easygoing beagles who need to come too. I am interested in short term but would consider long term. I am Licensed Professional Counselors in PA and IL and have 14 years teaching experience with a diverse population, supervised Crisis intervention staff for a County crisis intervention service and worked for a brief time in Older Adult Protective Services. Retired from full time employment in March 2019.
  4. I have several graduate degrees including a law degree. I am interested in relocating to an independent living situation connected to a college which supports non-credit course work for seniors.
  5. I’d like to attend a summer semester at a college or university, without credit. I’m not particularly interested in moving from my home in Pennsylvania, but look at a college experience as an interesting extended vacation. This type of program could benefit colleges by keeping their facilities and resources in use throughout the summer.
  6. 12/1 Young senior/educator retiree looking for retirement community on a college campus not away from it with fees attached for use of library, athletic facility, cheaper classes…not in the north part of the country. I already live in the coldest state, Mn. I have searched now extensively so will I need to have more info re rental prices, furnishings, accomodations, roomates (in college I lived with 6) . I can take roomates, 1/or 2; if , in the south, I would not imagine being inside too often anyhow. Please provide feedback. Thanks N
    1. Are travel options through life learning opportunities available? Can a resident elect not to have meals or no more than one meal per day?
