2013–14 Board of Directors
Coastal Senior College (CSC) provides intellectual stimulation and good company through classes and special events for seniors in the Midcoast. Volunteer-driven and managed, CSC is part of Maine's growing Maine Senior College Network affiliated with Campuses and Outreach Centers of the University of Maine System.
Highly knowledgeable instructors lead classes that typically meet for two hours during the week, usually for a full eight-week semester, which should allow you to fit at least one class into your schedule. There are no grades, exams, or term papers required!
Special events, forums, lectures, and field trips are also offered to CSC members throughout the year, often noted in one of our e-Newsletters. Additional benefits of CSC membership include the opportunity to join the governing board, the operating committees, and volunteer opportunities such as planning special events, assisting instructors, and helping with office tasks.
Senior College is open to all seniors 50 years of age or more, and to their spouses or partners, who value education and have inquiring minds.
Coastal Senior College is located at 91 Camden Street, Suite 402 in Rockland, Maine. CSC can be found on the fourth floor of the Breakwater Building in Rockland at the home of University College facilities at Rockland (URock).

The doors open at 11:30 and lunch is served at noon.

the event, making the cost to members only $20 each. Tickets for non-members
will be $24. The menu includes a choice of: “Vegetarian Lasagna” with marinara

Following this delicious lunch, Marnie Sinclair will present an intriguing, informative and entertaining talk involving art and serious climate science. Our own energy and sustainability advocate, CSC Board Member Paul Kando, has heard one of Marnie’s impressive presentations and can’t recommend her highly enough! Some dozen examples of her art pieces, as well as a few of her free-standing sculptures, will also be on display.
