Retirement is an exciting but stressful time. While many look forward to new goals
and activities, they may also feel the loss of contact with colleagues and of being
part of university life. To help those anticipating retirement and those who have
retired from Austin Peay State University deal with these issues, the Austin Peay
State University Retirement Association (APSURA) was formed. For most members, the
continued contact with other retirees and colleagues still employed was the primary
reason to be part of APSURA. To see the many ways APSURA supports and benefits current
