Elder College 2017

What: Elder College 2017

When: October 23-27 from 9am-3pm

Where: Dezember Leadership Development Center 

"Elder College provides a lot of fun and learning experiences. Elder College began as an Elder Hostel and was directed by Laura and Harvey Brockmeyer. After three sessions, a decision was made to transform it into a week-long Elder College sponsored by CSUB. Each morning there are two sessions and in the afternoon, one session. Lunch is served at the Commons except for one catered lunch in the Dezember Center. On Friday there will be a field trip to Mojave. We invite you to attend this year. The more people, the more successful Elder College is and will continue for more years. I loved each year's program and know you also will."

-Eloise Higgins, Elder College Committee member
