Retirees Association

Live & Learn Workshops planned for fall 2018

Foundation Building

The Wright State University Retirees Association (WSURA) will offer a third round of Live & Learn Workshops in the fall of 2018. Live & Learn Workshops are designed to stimulate discussions and develop new skills. WSURA members, spouses, friends and university employees are welcome.

Two topics are planned for the fall at this time: Gary Barlow will present on the basics of art and Donna Schlagheck will coordinate a presentation or panel discussion on politics prior to the election. Retirees with ideas for other topics of interest, should forward them to the workshop organizer, Marlene Bireley, at

The second year of Live & Learn Workshops was held in April at the WSURA office in the WSU Foundation Building across from the campus. After a modest beginning in 2017, the number of presentations was expanded from two to four topics, and the number of participants tripled from nine to 27 this year. A number of participants attended multiple sessions so that each workshop served from 10 to 14 people each.

Topics covered were:

  • Comparative Religion;
  • Current International Issues;
  • Improving Your Understanding of Smart Phones and Tablets; and
  • Introduction to Genealogy.
