Did You Know?

Principia Lifelong Learning activities are open to all adult Christian Scientists and all Principia alumni, as well as their spouses.

Principia offers a wide variety of opportunities to learn and travel with alumni and friends.

Our on-campus Summer Session program gets you back in the classroom, where you can study topics ranging from the Promised Land to Pearl Harbor, from Shakespeare to social media, with engaging instructors. When you’re not in class, lend your voice at hymn sings, draw inspiration from morning Chapel talks, and enjoy concerts, dancing, and other entertainment.

Off-campus opportunities include a wide range of trips. Join alumni and friends on adventures across the globe, led by Principia faculty members. These educational adventures give you the opportunity to experience new cultures, broaden your perspectives, and enrich your understanding.

Hike Hadrian’s Wall

Learn about the history of beautiful northern England as you trek the length of Hadrian’s Wall, a World Heritage Site. This 84-mile National Trail spans rolling fields and rugged moorland, with Roman forts, villages, and museums along the way.

Watch the Mekong River Cruise Slideshow

Principia alumni and friends embarked on an educational adventure to Vietnam and Cambodia last December with Professor John Williams as their guide.
