Many retirees looking for a way to be culturally active and intellectually stimulated are entering programs that link retirement residences with colleges and universities, reported the Washington Post. The benefits of this not only affect the seniors, but the young college students as well. Meador spoke about the intergenerational learning available between Ithaca College and Longview, where seniors can sit in on classes with undergraduates and provide context and reality to the students’ academic subjects. Centurelli, who has volunteered with retirees, says, “Hearing about different experiences allows you to reflect on your own life and see it a little bit differently, which I think is important for college students to do.”
