Senior College goes virtual for Fall 2020

Jun 18, 2020 | 2:25 PM

As we stay safely at home, we can still join in learning about our world. Senior College faculty are ready to offer their lectures via Zoom. 

The Fall 2020 Season begins Tuesday September 15 and continues Tuesdays and Thursdays through October 29.  

We are convening via ZOOM.  With a single click, you are joining the group.  You can safely connect from ANY device with internet access that has audio – computer, laptop, ipad, phone.  We will offer a trial run before the season begins to assure your set up works and to get acquainted with the program and your controls. 

Materials for Fall will be available around August 1.
