Registration Begins February 4 for 20th FVCC Senior Institute

Registration for Flathead Valley Community College’s 20th annual Senior Institute will kick off February 4 at 8 a.m.  The program provides area seniors ages 65 years of age and older opportunities to enroll in classes designed just for them.  The program promotes the lifelong opportunities and enables seniors to learn new information, develop new and enhance existing skills, reconnect with old friends and make new ones, and stay active during the winter months.

Last year, more than 260 seniors participated in the six-week program.  This spring, seniors have the opportunity to enroll in one of the program’s 13 courses that range from yoga, computers and ceramics to the Civil War, Glacier National Park, and world travel.  The cost to enroll varies with each class.

The program will meet every Friday beginning February 21 and concluding March 28.  Students are treated to a complimentary lunch buffet each Friday from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.  Classes follow lunch from 1 to 2:50 p.m.

Classes fill on a first-come, first-served basis.  Students may register in-person at the FVCC Registration Office in Blake Hall on the college’s Kalispell campus, or registration forms can be mailed or faxed to the college.  Mail-in registration forms with complete course descriptions and enrollment fees can be obtained by calling 756-3813 or by visiting
