Center on Aging

Meadowlark Lecture Series

The Meadowlark Hills Lecture Series grew out of a desire to establish further connections between the retirement community and campus. Meadowlark Hills' residents desired opportunities to continue to learn. Kansas State University was a perfect fit to meet this request. The Center on Aging serves to connect these two organizations. The series runs from September through May each year on the second Thursday of the month from 4-5 p.m. in the Meadowlark Hills community room (2121 Meadowlark Road, Manhattan, KS 66502). Residents, staff and community members are welcome.
