Wonderlust is a member-run organization offering lifelong learning opportunities for inquiring adults. There are no “requirements”. No grades. No papers. Wonderlust is simply learning for the sake of learning.


Benefits of Membership
Membership is $35 per person annually and includes:

• reduced tuition for courses

• free member-only Side Trips: lectures and field trips

• one pass each semester to bring a guest to a Side Trip event

• invitations to Special Events

• Friday Forum notifications

Wonderlust Offerings
We offer two types of courses. Full-length courses meet for two hours every week for typically 4-6 weeks.
Side Trip short courses meet only once and may be anything from a lecture to an all-day field trip. During each semester, we also offer a variety of other learning opportunities such as writing workshops, opera club, and book discussion groups.

Our courses are usually lecture format but with plenty of time for questions and discussion. Book groups and writing workshops have a leader but are primarily member interactive discussions.

If you cancel before a course starts, you may apply the tuition fee as a credit toward a future course. If you want a refund, there is a $25 processing fee. There will be no refunds / credits
after the course begins. Social Security numbers are required in order to process refunds by check.





Welcome to new and returning visitors to the Wonderlust web site. 

Thanks to the significant efforts of the volunteers on our planning committees, we have a terrific line-up of programs for this winter/spring semester.  Hopefully you will find a number of opportunities that appeal to your interests.  Our offerings include multi-week courses, as well as single lectures (we call them Side Trips), public interest forums (Friday Forums, which are open to the public), and several workshops and special events.  You can register on-line for courses, and sign up for your annual membership, if needed.   

A new feature of our web site is the posting of instructor materials (handouts, slides etc.) These are available to registered members in the course.  We realize some members don’t take a course because they will miss a session.  We hope that by making these materials available, people will feel they have a good way to make up a missed class.
