August 11, 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
As we begin another year of Senior College, under most unusual circumstances, we invite you to join us to meet Instructors of online fall classes. Each will briefly describe their class and offer a taste of the exciting, educational, fun, and mind-expanding opportunities available from the comfort of your home. We will miss the Hutchinson Center, the camaraderie, the animated classes, and of course cookies and coffee but we promise that you will find online learning can be satisfying and stimulating as well.
To register, simply fill out the form below. This session is free, and all are welcome!
Given today’s environment and the vulnerability of our demographics the Board of Directors has made the decision to cancel all Fall Senior College “on campus” classes at the Hutchinson Center.
There will be a full slate of online courses for the fall.
We will have more information coming to you about fall courses, but in the meantime we wish all of you a safe summer. Take care.
The Belfast Senior College has been featured in a lovely three page article by Shelagh Talbot in the April issue of Maine Seniors Magazine with lots of photos courtesy of Belfast Senior College. Pick up the latest issue at your newstand or download the article as a PDF.
Waldo County is beautiful – a coastal area with much to do and enjoy, and for almost 20 years Belfast Senior College has been a vibrant part of that landscape. The college was created in 2001 by a group of Belfast-area residents and leaders along with Dr. Jim Patterson, director of the newly opened Hutchinson Center-part of the University of Maine system. This center was built with the idea of creating outreach for the university and “serving as an educational and cultural hub for the mid-coast community,” according to their website. Belfast Senior College is a perfect fit.
Welcome to The Senior College at Belfast, where people meet to exchange new ideas, explore classic and contemporary topics and make new friends.
Senior College provides a diverse curriculum of programs, classes and special events for those 50 years and older, along with their spouses or partners. Enjoy subjects ranging from the intellectually challenging to the purely enjoyable. We’re the third largest of the 17 Senior Colleges in the state with more than 500 mid-coast members.
Classes meet every Thursday for six weeks during the fall and spring semesters and for four weeks during a January-February “Winterim” semester.
Take a look at who we are, what we do and why we can’t imagine life without Senior College!
