Keep brain and body active to age well – The Boston Globe
Dorothy Anger has taken nine courses at Boston University, ranging from film to foreign relations and the Middle East. But unlike the majority of her classmates, Anger is not in search of a future career path. Her working days are already behind her.
Anger, 69, retired several years ago after a career in grant writing and communications. In that time, she has become a dedicated student in BU’s Evergreen program, which allows adults 58 and older to audit undergraduate and graduate-level courses.
“I think this is one of the best times of my life,’’ Anger said. “I have enormous freedom to do whatever I want to do and I’m taking great advantage of it.’’
