Life Long Learners abound at Primrose of Pueblo through the Primrose Senior University (PSU) program. Along with Life Enrichment Coordinator Barbara Della Rossa, the class is currently studying our 8th course titled “The World’s Greatest Geological Wonders: 36 Spectacular Sites” with weekly videos in our theater through the fall. Professor Michael E. Wysession from Washington University in St. Louis allows us to be arm chair travelers as we learn the in and out, above and below, and in between of such majestic creations of nature as volcanos Santorini and Mount Fuji, Rifts, Ales, Shale from Africa to Australia and to Antarctica, the Grand Canyon, Devils Tower, Water Falls, Caves, Glaciers, Hot Springs, Tides, Floods, Fjords and finally outer space. The class has been very well attended and we look forward to field trips this fall to the beautiful Garden of the Gods Park in Colorado Springs and the Royal Gorge Canon in Canon City.

Previous PSU courses have been on music, paintings, art, nutrition, wine history and tasting, and brain fitness. Guest speakers have included Pueblo Symphony Conductor Dr. Jacob Chi, a Family Member Geologist, Nutritionist’s from Vitamin Cottage and local Wine Experts. Classes are free for “the Primrose Family” (residents, family members and friends) and a great way to keep on learning with other like-minded seniors who are curious and love to learn. There are several residents that have graduation certificates for every course and have joked they may be entitled to an honorary degree before long.

Come see why this is living and learning at Primrose of Pueblo.
