Anyone familiar with Charleston SC knows it’s picture perfect and more and more folks are finding it’s a great place to retire. Life in the Lowcountry is steeped in history, amazing architecture, never ending recreation possibilities, an awesome culinary scene and culture, with its art and museums. And if you’re looking for just the right location that also offers educational opportunities for seniors, The College of Charleston has you covered!

The Center for Creative Retirement (CCR) is composed of a diverse group of seniors who share an enthusiasm for education. This self-governing group holds weekly meetings throughout the academic year, and offers field trips to historical and cultural sites.

Members, who are considered non-credit students at the College of Charleston, are eligible for: 

  • Weekly meetings from September through May
  • Smaller in-depth study groups
  • Some off-site meetings
  • CCR newsletters
  • Field trips to historical and cultural sites

Retirees often continue to use a pre-retirement financial plan – such as asset accumulation – and find that it no longer fits their fiscal needs. However, alternatives can be more complicated, and retirees may struggle to understand the particulars, or feel unsure as to whom they can trust. Designed for retirees 65-75 years of age, College of Charleston offers a four-hour course that addresses the financial issues facing individuals in the early stages of retirement. Experienced and informed instructors will show you how to manage your entire nest egg and demystify the distribution-planning process. And there is more for seniors at the College of Charleston. You can check it all out at http://sps.cofc.edu/ccpe/personal-enrichment/retirement-planning/
