We hope you'll join us for adventures near and far

The Craven Community College Foundation’s Lifetime Learning Center (LLC) invites you to join us for a wide variety of programs and activities for adults.

Whether it’s a film that intrigues, a performance that inspires, a Broadway production that excites, or a regional tour that delights, we hope that you will find the Lifetime Learning Center to be a resource that satisfies your quest for adventures both near and far.

The LLC is a concept-based program that embraces accomplished adults who are seeking multiple and diverse opportunities in learning for the pure pleasure of it. We are keenly aware that our community is brimming with individuals, both natives and newcomers, who have completed their formal education, but are still active and hungry for interesting and diverse learning experiences.

COVID-19 NOTICE: The LLC is moving ahead and has planned a full calendar of events for the 2021-2022 program period. In light of the numerous cancellations and postponements that occurred over the last year and a half, we are cautiously optimistic that we will be able to run all the events listed in this brochure. Keep in mind that we may be required to make schedule adjustments as we proceed.

IMPORTANT POLICY NOTE: In an effort to keep all participants as safe and healthy as possible, we will be following all North Carolina Health Department guidelines regarding mask wearing, social distancing, and vaccinations as they are relevant to our planned activities. If you are planning to participate, please plan to follow the protocols that are in place at the time of any particular event.

Thank you for your support!

The Lifetime Learning Center is grateful to The Thomas B. & Robertha K. Coleman Foundation, American Institute of Architects (AIA) of Eastern NC,  and South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and North Carolina Arts Council for providing grant funding for a variety of arts and cultural programs this year.

Questions others are asking.

Enrollment space for all LLC day trips and regional travel programs is limited to the capacity of our motor coach, ticket availability or other booking factors associated with group admissions. To reserve a place on any of these trips, all fees must be paid at the time of registration. Early registration is highly recommended as the day trips tend to “sell out” very quickly.

To register and pay fees online, please visit our Tickets and Registration page. If you would prefer to register by telephone or have questions about the online process, please call us at 252-638-7351 for assistance. Our office hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Tickets for the Explorations in the Arts are not refundable. However, the tickets are transferable. If you are unable to attend a particular event, you are welcome to share your tickets with another person.

One-day and three-day trip registration fees will only be refunded if the predetermined minimum enrollment is not met, and the trip is cancelled because of low enrollment. If the college, or the performance or exhibit venue, determines that threatening weather must cancel a trip or performance, no direct refund will be offered. An alternative trip date will be selected and the trip will go on as offered on the new date. If this is not possible, a refund will be issued.

There are no refunds offered after an event has occurred. A refund of fees to a registered participant will only occur when a cancellation is made at least 36 hours in advance of the event and a replacement from the waiting list registers for the open spot. Please contact the Lifetime Learning Center as soon as possible if a last-minute circumstance arises. We often have an extensive waiting list for each day trip, and we will attempt to fill a spot if we are notified in time.

Before signing up for any event, please be sure to read our Know Before You Go page.
