NB seniors' college celebrates successful first year

June 4, 2009

New Brunswick-based Tantramar Seniors' College is about to celebrate its first anniversary. Modelled on the successful uPEI-affiliated seniors' college, the school focuses on peer learning in that seniors share skills and knowledge with each other through 8-week courses, whose subjects range from yoga and tennis to gardening and birdwatching. The seniors' college has grown from 10 courses with 127 registrants in the first term to over 24 courses with more than 260 registrants in the current spring term. Courses have also expanded into Moncton and Amherst. Sackville Tribune-Post
