Serving mid-coast Maine from Wiscasset to Camden, Coastal Senior College (CSC) provides intellectual stimulation and good company through classes and special events for seniors in Lincoln and Knox counties. Click here to watch our new CSC video.
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. For an article on this national movement click here.
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.
The Coastal Senior College business office is located at 91 Camden Street, Suite 402 in Rockland, Maine, on the fourth floor of the Breakwater Building in Rockland at the home of University College facilities at Rockland (URock). Click here for directions.
