No homework, no exams and no HECS debts are just some of the advantages of one Border university.
The Albury-Wodonga University of the Third Age held a morning tea on Friday to coincide with seniors celebrations and explain more about this educational movement for mature learners.
About 50 people heard U3A, which is affiliated with Albury-Wodonga Community College, began on the Border in 1992.

“You get to know people of a similar age, similar interests,” Albury-Wodonga U3A president Eddie Voogt said.
“Eventually you finish up with very good friendships.”
