College for Older Adults

Are you over 50 and looking to keep active, make new friends, learn a few new things, and just have fun? If so the College for Older Adults has just what you need! Take one of our more than 40 classes that cover everything from arts and crafts, to fitness and nutrition. Membership fee is only $50 and you may take as many classes as you like!

Registration for our 14th College for Older Adults is now open! Lots of great classes to choose among to satisfy your love of history, hiking, art, and much more.

Our Fall 2016 COA tour of Hahn Gardens at Virginia Tech and fall floral arranging class was awesome!

There is a good selection of art and craft classes for those who like to create.

The membership fee for the spring session of COA is only $50, and that enables you to enjoy a        selection of over 40 classes and events. Some classes, especially art, may have additional supply fees, but we try to keep those as low as possible.  Each day we provide snacks and refreshments, and our friendly hostesses and staff members look forward to meeting new members, greeting familiar faces, and learning and growing with you! We do offer a reduced rate for those who only want to participate in the hiking and walking  classes; for those the membership fee is $35.

Because many of the art and craft classes have limited space, please register early. You will be notified if you are put on a waiting list—in that case the instructor will be consulted and either see if more students can be added, or if another class can be scheduled. If a class is canceled due to low enrollment, or if we are unable to move you from the waiting list, your fee will be refunded to you.

Please submit your completed registration form no later than Friday, September 15 along with a Physical Liability Waiver if needed.

If you have any questions about the classes, or would like to register a guest, please contact Lisa Martin at 276-694-7181.
