Alvernia Seniors College
The Alvernia Seniors College, which celebrated its 20th anniversary in the fall of 2018, offers senior citizens (age 55 and over) the opportunity for life-long learning. Alvernia University sponsors this program as part of its mission to be of service to the community.
Each year, three semesters of Seniors College classes offer approximately 20-25 courses each session, running the gamut from computer classes to English literature.
Volunteers teach classes, recruited from Alvernia University senior members, area professionals, Alvernia professors, and the community-at-large. In addition to academic courses there are several clubs to take part in. These informal groups meet on a regular basis, some once a week and others monthly. The programs give members an opportunity to learn and socialize in a comfortable environment.
