Rotary Cogwheel | 12.01.2016

Northfield Rotary Club - Wed, 11/30/2016 - 11:13am

Today’s Program | Thursday, December 1, 2016

Today: John Ehresmann, My Red Cross Experiences (Prichard)

Next Week: Ragh Singh, Classification (W. Sivanich)

Last Week:
If you are a life-long learner and your birthdays number somewhere north of 50, check out the Cannon Valley Elder Collegium.

Now approaching its 20th anniversary, the self-organized and self-sustaining educational consortium offers between 35 and 40 courses each year to some 700 seniors citizens, broadly defined. Jerry Mohrig, retired Carleton College chemistry professor and now board chair, and Rick Noer, retired Carleton College physics professor and now executive director, said the collegium provides a high-quality academic experience. Many of the instructors are retired professors from St. Olaf College and Carleton College. They know of what they speak. But moreover, the instructors are known for great communication skills and a passion for their subject.

The collegium offers 13 courses, mostly of the liberal arts variety, twice a year in eight-week terms. Classes meet at various sites, including the senior center, churches, and retirement-living settings. Most classes have 15 to 20 students. The cost is $50 a class.

Jerry said successful aging depends on a healthy brain. The collegium is designed to provide a place where people can feed their curiosity and stay in the learning posture. And, Jerry says, it is a place to meet new and interesting people.

A local grant and grants from the Minnesota Humanities Commission were used to launch the venture, but now the collegium covers costs with tuition and an annual fundraising appeal. Rick said the collegium’s future is bright.

The collegium is a real asset for the community, he said, contributing to Northfield’s quality of life and giving retirees another reason to move here.

Guests: Max Melberg (Heilman) and Mikayla Fischer (Achinson)
