  • Senior College Members are lifelong learners!
    Penobscot Valley Senior College is fortunate to have long-time members, as well as new members. Be sure to let your family and friends (near and far) know about the reasons you joined PVSC! Have them join with you, or give them a gift certificate for a membership or a course. Most of us have plenty of "things", but need more "experiences" during these crazy times!
    Our instructors and presenters are volunteers, and most have adapted to delivering their knowledge virtually on Zoom. We are so thankful for their flexibility.

    We are also looking for more Spring and Summer 2022 Instructors. If you or someone you know are interested in volunteering to teach for us, please send an email to smksenior2020@gmail.com

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Reminder, if you are a member of another Maine Senior College, and wish to register for any PVSC Courses or Presentations, you should first call Sheila at 207-659-1359 or email smksenior2020@gmail.com
    so that the membership fee will be adjusted before registering. You will then be able to register online, or mail a check for the course fees, if any.
    Thank you! 

    AND if you don't find a PVSC course that works for you, make sure to check out the Maine Senior College Network (MSCN) website
    https://www.maineseniorcollege.org/
    to see what is being offered by the other Maine Senior Colleges. Let the senior college know that you are a current PVSC member, and you will only pay their course fees.

Welcome to Penobscot Valley Senior College! We'd love for you to join us!

We are a non-profit organization of volunteers that offers a wide variety of educational opportunities to members ages 50 and older for their enrichment and enjoyment.  Don't let the word "college" scare you--there are no grades or credits, no homework, no tests, just a lot of knowledge and comaraderie to experience!

Through a yearly affordable membership fee that runs from July 1st through June 30th of the following year, you may attend our free "One-Day" presentations and/or register for reasonably priced weekly 4-to-6 week two-hour courses. For fall 2021 and winter 2022, we will be offering courses only on Zoom, since facility availability is no longer an option. Zoom technology has provided PVSC the opportunity to link instructors and students who may live far from our geographical center in Bangor, Maine.


As part of the Maine Senior College Network (MSCN) members PVSC may also take courses at any other Maine Senior College simply by paying the course fees.  
If you have trouble registering for Courses be sure to review the How to Register for an Class page. Members of other senior colleges should call 207-659-1359 or email smksenior2020@gmail.com
so that the membership fee can be removed before registering online or mailing in course fees.
Thank you for your support!
