University-based Retirement Community

From classrooms to laboratories and field work, from music recitals  to seats at stadium football games, boomers are being renewed through university-based communities!

For many of us, retirement is a time to pursue interests in new ways. Throughout the Active Living industry, communities are establishing partnerships with colleges and universities, creating an environment for integrated learning, as well as participation in collegiate activities, sporting events and more.
