Spring into the new year with Senior Scholars!

Oak Hill & the Martha Berry Museum will once again host its Senior Scholars program, a series of courses for adults aged 55 and up, beginning the week of February 14 and running throughout the spring.  

“Senior Scholars is growing!” says Allison Moore, Director of Community Engagement & Education at Oak Hill, “We’ve loved seeing many new faces in the past couple of years, and are excited to be bringing a wide array of new classes and returning favorites for the many avid learners in our local senior community.”

The Senior Scholars program, now in its 28th year, offers a variety of classes and social programs with learning opportunities designed for senior adults aged 55 and up. These courses encourage participants to build friendships and a sense of community while participating in lifelong learning and growth.

This semester, the Senior Scholar program is offering seventeen unique courses, taught both by Berry College faculty and members of the Rome community. Courses feature a wide range in topics, such as watercolor painting, journaling, Spanish language, and literature. There is also a selection of health and wellness courses including pickleball, yoga, dance, and nutrition. Most courses are held at Oak Hill & The Martha Berry Museum, but a few are held on the Berry College campus.
