RISE spring information session planned

NASHUA – The Rivier Institute for Senior Education spring information session is scheduled for 1-3 p.m. Friday, Jan. 16, in the reception room of the Dion Center at Rivier University.

Seniors can choose from more than 55 five-week courses with two start dates. First-term courses run from Feb. 2-March 6 and second-term courses run from March 16-April 24.

There are no learning prerequisites, no tests and no credits earned. Membership is $130, which includes the use of the Muldoon Health and Fitness Center, Regina Library and Dion Dining Hall.

Members may participate in up to five courses each term. Topics include literature, history, music, art and dance, computer science, photography, religion, philosophy and spiritual enrichment, writing, world cultures, current events, genealogy, moderate exercise and water exercise, and bridge. Twenty nine of the courses are new for spring.

The RISE program, tailored for “learning in retirement,” is in its 18th year. Individuals older than 55 are welcome to learn more about RISE, preview courses and register with a check at the information session.

Course brochures are available online, at local libraries and senior centers, and at the RISE office at Rivier University, which is in Sylvia Trottier Hall, Room 237, on Clement Street.

The brochure is available at rivier.edu/rise and facebook.com/RISE1997.
