Attention Senior Scholars
Virginia Tech is offering a positive addition to the lives of our citizens by offering "senior college classes" locally. This program is designed for people 50 and older. The series consists of local people giving presentations on their areas of expertise. Many of the presenters are Virginia Tech retirees and faculty, but future instructors will not be limited to that demographic.
