The Senior Institute at FVCC is for community members 65+ and occurs annually in February and March. The Senior Institute is a vibrant community of older adults who are excited to learn, build relationships, and explore new ideas.
From long-time returning students to those new to FVCC, the Senior Institute is a welcoming community for anyone who is interested in learning new skills and growing their social network. Join us in the upcoming Senior Institute to see what the excitement is about!
