The Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College College for Seniors Program is back up and running with a new schedule of Spring Semester 2018 courses.
As an effort of meeting the increasing desire in the senior community for continued education, Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College offers a College for Seniors program. College for Seniors is a unique program featuring a variety of non-accredited courses that older learners can enroll in for a small fee and short amount of time.
“It has been an incredibly eye-opening experience for me was seeing just what a huge need and want there is from seniors for continuing education as we put together the new course schedule,” said Stacey Johnson, Administrative Assistant in the FDLTCC Continuing Education department.
Each semester, Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College offers a diverse list of enrichment on-campus classes seniors can choose to enroll in. These classes range from one class meeting to seven, with fees ranging from just $5-$30.
These non-credit courses are offered to stimulate the intellectual, emotional and physical well-being of older adults in order to enrich their lives and enhance their well-being.
College for Seniors is a great way to increase knowledge of specific subjects, with no need of prior education, exams, or homework. Participants are encouraged to come ready to learn, and to share interactive experiences in the classroom.
Current classes offered for Spring Semester 2018 are Genealogy, Indian 101, Fiddler on the Roof, The Virtual & Literary Narrative, Understanding Technology, Eddie Bears, and What Stream Critters Can Tell You.
These non-credit courses will teach information varying from better understanding the history of the Anishinaabeg people, to how to navigate Facebook.
The College for Seniors program is a great opportunity for veteran learners to keep the mind sharp and build camaraderie through mingling, interacting, and connecting with students on campus. Classes are held in Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College’s classrooms, with a few including outdoor activities to complement your learning experience.

Testimonials

I chose FDLTCC because of its size and the curriculum. When I first came here in 2019, I was just looking for what I needed to volunteer, perhaps in a crisis shelter. I met with Don Jarvinen, and the rest is history.

FDLTCC offered me a supportive environment I couldn't pass up, everyone and everything here at school is trying to help you succeed, from the programs, to the faculty, to the resources.

I chose FDLTCC for a fresh start in life. It had been two years since I graduated High School and I wanted more than just working a 9-5. I was living in Florida at the time, and I had an opportunity to travel the world doing what I love playing the game of basketball.
