The advent of Park Springs University will make these seniors freshmen again, and all will receive degrees in living well.

Park Springs University and its subsidiary, Cobblestone College, are initiatives of Park Springs, Atlanta’s award-winning campus-style continuing care retirement community (CCRC) for people who are aged 62 and older. Members who register as students earn credits for courses and activities that address overall wellness. They enter as freshman and, depending on their rate of participation, will graduate in two to three years. For the perpetual students in the crowd, post-graduate work is available.

The initiative’s kick off during the week of September 25-30, 2006, coincides with the International Council of Active Aging’s annual Active Aging Week. Inaugural activities will include comedic and informative speakers, a Friday afternoon “Senior Idol” competition, and a Saturday evening Homecoming Party with the Maurice White Band.
“Our members come to Park Springs to live full lives in a secure environment with easy access to quality health care if needed,” says E. Andrew (Andy) Isakson, Managing Partner of Park Springs developer Isakson-Barnhart. “Wellness is about the whole person. We tend to think of limitations as we age, but the truth is that there are more opportunities for personal growth in wellness in the second half of our lives than the first.”
Coursework and related activities at PSU will focus on six areas of wellness:
Physical, Vocational, Social, Intellectual, Spiritual and Psychological. The group activities and lectures by staff experts and invited guests, many from Emory’s Center for Health in Aging, will be augmented by college-inspired social events.

Park Springs University students will receive one credit hour for each hour of class or activity they attend. They may earn enough credits for an associate’s degree or a bachelor’s degree. They may choose to concentrate in one of the six areas of wellness, according to their interests.
“The college years are traditionally growing years, and we’ve noticed that our members don’t stop growing when they move here,” said Isakson. “They just develop in different ways and new areas. Park Springs University will facilitate their growth – in health, friendships and activity.”
Cobblestone College classes will be available for members who reside in Cobblestone, the CCRC’s assisted living, skilled nursing and memory-care facility. Classes will be tailored to their interests and abilities, with independent studies available.

The Southeast's premier CCRC, Park Springs enhances life for active seniors by providing independent residences alongside extensive amenities and on-site wellness and private health care facilities. The 398-home campus-style community is situated on 54 acres surrounded by Stone Mountain Park. A 64-suite health center provides assisted living, skilled nursing and dementia/Alzheimer's care. The campus style community boasts a 50,000 square foot clubhouse serving meals in four themed dining rooms daily and a 12,000 square foot fitness center with an indoor swimming pool. Park Springs was named a Platinum winner by the Seniors Housing Council of the National Association of Home Builders. Park Springs is developed by Isakson-Barnhart, award-winning developers of CCRCs including Peachtree Hills Place in Buckhead.
