Nashua – Due to COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, the Rivier Institute for Senior Education (RISE) is conducting the spring semester online via Zoom. The six-week semester is from March 1 to April 9. Each class session is 60 minutes and held between 9:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
Seniors can choose from more than 30 courses. There are no learning prerequisites, no tests and no credits earned. Membership fee is $50.00 for one or more courses.
Course topics include literature, history, music, fine arts, technology, philosophy, personal safety, personal growth, writing, politics and the world, health, arts and crafts, enrichment, and yoga.
Zoom is easy to use, and RISE will provide support for individuals who might be hesitant to participate using this format. Zoom allows a continuation of lifelong learning and provides a way to connect while RISE is off campus.
Information for the course listings and the link to register will be posted at www.rivier.edu/rise by February 1st. The registration period is from February 1 to February 14. Deadline to register is end of the day on February 14.
