Opportunities for Learning & Discovery at The Admiral at the Lake

The Admiral at the Lake believes that knowledge is a habit worth practicing; and we’re inspired each and every day to provide our residents with opportunities to continue learning, growing and sharing new experiences.

The Lifelong Learning committee at The Admiral at the Lake regularly hosts distinguished speakers from some of Chicago’s most prestigious institutions. Experienced lecturers  cover a variety of interesting topics including literature, science, architecture, history, current affairs and many others.

Previous events have featured lecturers from the Oriental Institute, the Lincoln Park Zoo, Adler Planetarium, and also hosted programs on classical music with the former president of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra

With over 300 well-educated and intellectually curious occupants of The Admiral at the Lake, the mission of our Lifelong Learning program is to help enhance knowledge and understanding by providing access to informative courses and lectures, both one-time and in series, at the facility. We hope you can join us to learn about new things and more about old things.

“Use your mind to enrich your experiences, learn about new things and more about old things.”

Toni Smith
Chair of the Lifelong Learning Committee
