Welcome to BRCLL
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. Most of our classes and events are held on the campus of the BRCC; however we also have trips (EdVentures) and industry tours to areas of interest nearby.
Our members are our customers, if they are not satisfied with our programs and EdVentures we will cease to exist. After each course we ask the participants to complete a satisfaction survey. We also request suggestions for future classes and trips. We recently completed an anonymous email survey of our members to ascertain their feelings toward the organization. The results were gratifying:
89% of the respondents agreed that the facilities were convenient and satisfactory,
92% of the respondents said that they would recommend the BRCLL to others,
85% of the respondents agreed that the classes are affordable,
76% of the respondents stated that the $70 lifetime membership fee is reasonable.
Very few businesses receive this kind of customer satisfaction rating. I feel proud to be part of Blue Ridge Center for Lifelong Learning.
