The Center for Lifetime Study is an outreach of Brenau University providing opportunities for professional education, lifelong learning, leadership, and cultural exploration through carefully designed curriculum and programs. Partnerships facilitated by the Center span the University and our regional community, enriching the personal and professional lives of our active and diverse population of students.

We are proud to introduce a growing portfolio of continuing education and professional development opportunities for busy professionals keeping abreast of the latest developments in their fields, advancing in their careers, and transitioning to new opportunities. We are equally proud of our cornerstone lifelong learning program, Brenau University Learning & Leisure Institute (BULLI). BULLI offers intellectually challenging and socially rewarding educational courses and programs in a welcoming environment for our active mature adult community.

The BULLI Program

BULLI was founded in 1994 as a joint venture between Brenau and community leaders who were interested in establishing a lifelong learning program in the Gainesville/Hall County region. Due to the popularity of the program and the growing needs of members, BULLI partnered with the town of Braselton in 2012 to expand course offerings to a second site.

Our member-led, member-driven organization stays abreast with the needs and interests of our members. The curriculum committee listens to our members and works to keep course offerings fresh and vibrant.

BULLI is more than just taking classes. Social and leisure activities are equally important. BULLI has a special interest group just for you. Whether your interest is in joining our BULLI Hiking Club, our Dinner Together group or attending one of our special event offerings, BULLI’s leisure activities provide something for everyone to enjoy.
