2012-13 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.
CSC was begun by a group of volunteers from Knox and Lincoln Counties. Classes were offered for the first time in March 2002 at University College Rockland (URock), with an enrollment of more than 200 students. CSC's annual membership fee of $25 entitles you to take classes in all other senior collewge locations as well, paying the same charge for the course as members of the other senior college pay. Courses are offered in arts, humanities, social sciences, science, technology, health, and finance, and are held in Damariscotta, Newcastle, Rockland, Nobleboro, Boothbay Harbor, and Camden.
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). Click here to get directions.
