Lifelong Scholar Society

Thursday Night Lectures

How do you spend your Thursday nights? Stuck on the couch, watching the same old television show or surfing the web to find something new and interesting? Put down that remote and step away from the keyboard. The Lifelong Scholar Society is where you need to be!

The Thursday Night Lecture Series gives you the satisfaction of stimulating the brain without the worry of attending a college course. Every other Thursday evening, you will have the opportunity to interact with accomplished Florida Institute of Technology professors and local experts of their respective fields. Plus, you'll get to know fellow members and guests. 


Florida Tech’s Lifelong Scholar Society has moved online until it is deemed safe for us to meet in person again. We are using the online meeting website Zoom. It is super easy and you don’t have to be a computer whiz to join in the fun. You can participate via desktop, laptop, tablet, or simply listen on your phone.

Currently, there will be no charge for this pilot "members only" online version of the Lifelong Scholar Society. Join in, enjoy the lecture, and see your Lifelong friends online.

The pre-recorded video presentation will feature two hours of inspiring stories and expert insights.
