An All-Volunteer Enrichment Experience
Sunrise Senior College (SSC) at the University of Maine, Machias, provides a curriculum of intellectually stimulating programs, practical knowledge, social interaction, and special activities for Washington County residents fifty years of age or older, and their spouses and/or partners.
There are no tests or grades and no prior college education is required however, some classes recommend reading certain books or plays to enrich the course experience while others may suggest writing assignments to help hone your creative skills.
A variety of courses are offered during the Spring and Fall months, most lasting 4 to 6 sessions. We also offer a series of single event Summer Short programs from June to the end of August that are free to members and uniquely designed to fit the busy lifestyle of Mainers.
These programs are very popular with many of our ‘Snowbirds’ that visit Maine during the summer months. Our Winter Warm Ups program presented during January and February is open to all and helps bring people together during the cold winter months.
