Who We Are

In the 1980s, California Lutheran College offered an Elderhostel program (now known as Road Scholar). As the College became a University, programs came and went, and new ways of serving our 50+ population were offered. Today, we have come full circle with the Fifty and Better program (FAB).

FAB was designed to offer university-level courses (no tests, no homework) taught by experts in the field, and to host social engagement activities to individuals 50 years of age and older in our community. When COVID-19 erupted and the first-ever offering of in-person courses had to be postponed indefinitely, we responded by moving three courses to a virtual (online) environment using Zoom. In a short time, FAB's enrollment exploded and we now have students throughout the state of California and across the country.   

Fifty and Better offers 6-week course sessions, with courses meeting for two hours each week, as well as individual and 2-part lectures (also meeting for two hours each). Many of our FAB students take multiple courses and lectures at a time. We also offer social engagement activities periodically.

It is our pleasure to welcome you to the FAB community!​
