What is an Interest Group and How Can I Join One?

Interest Groups provide SLL members with an opportunity to join with other members who share a focus on a certain area of interest (i.e. Bridge, Meditation, Opera, French, Photography, etc.). New Interest Groups may form at any time. Please indicate your interest by registering (no fee) for upcoming meetings and events. Interest groups will identify one member to serve as the leader and as the point of contact for others interested in joining.

Upcoming Interest Groups

The WKU Cultural Enhancement Series (CES) provides the campus and community the opportunity to meet some of the nation’s most influential artists and intellectuals. The goal of the series is to challenge our audiences, expose them to new ideas, and give them new perspectives on our world.

Southern Circuit brings the best of new independent film to communities across the South. Audiences have seen over 300 films in more than 100 Southern communities. The Circuit takes the audience away from their televisions, computers, tablets, and phones to connect them with independent filmmakers - live! Films will show at the Capital Arts Center, 416 East Main Street. Admission is free, no tickets necessary. Seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The goal for this group is to meet regularly during the spring term for a brief time of mindful meditation and reflection. Times will not interfere with classes and will be set once the group is formed. Sessions will last less than an hour.

The Metropolitan Opera is a vibrant home for the most creative and talented singers, conductors, composers, musicians, stage directors, designers, visual artists, choreographers, and dancers from around the world.

In December 2006, the company launched The Met: Live in HD, a series of performance transmissions shown live in high definition in movie theaters around the world. The series expanded from an initial six transmissions to 10 in the 2014-15 season and today reaches more than 2,000 venues in 70 countries across six continents.

If you knit and would like to join other knitters on a regular basis to work on projects, show your finished projects, lend a helping hand, and encourage each other, this interest group is for you! We will begin meeting again soon and decide as a group how often to meet and where. Please join us as your schedule allows and let's see where this fun craft takes us.

This interest group is under construction. Check back for updates and more information.

Let the SLL office know if you would like to see another interest group added. There is always room for more!
