Welcome to BRCLL,
the Blue Ridge Center for Lifelong Learning
Nurture Your Intellect
Inspire Your Imagination
Thank you for visiting the Blue Ridge Center for Lifelong Learning (BRCLL) website. We are an organization within the Blue Ridge Community College (BRCC) in Flat Rock, NC and are committed to nurturing intellects, inspiring imaginations, and expanding the horizons of adult lifelong learners through our educational and culturally diverse offerings and opportunities.
Keep your brain healthy. Engage. Take a few moments and look at the variety of classes BRCLL has to offer. We have warm and fuzzy options such as, "What Makes a Film Romantic" and on the more controversial side, "GMO'S." Are they a boon to humanity or something to avoid? If you lean toward the arts, "Two Operas - Two Happy Endings" or "Van Gough” may be more to your liking.
Remember the Wonder Bra? Register for the Brown Bag Lunch and discover what it was like to be on the ground floor of the Wonder Bra launch.
Itching to get out of town? Try an EdVenture. Join us for, "A Smoky Mountain Experience: Moonshine, History and Culture", "Holidays at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens" or tour a working sheep farm.
Mark your calendar and register for the popular BRCLL Annual Luncheon which sold out last year. Fellowship, good food and great entertainment await.
Note that we have made arrangements for nonmembers of our organization to attend our classes. If anyone sees a class that interests them but they are not ready to join at this time they can register to attend a class. Use the nonmember registration form.
We look forward to seeing you. Click any link for additional information.
