"We just got done with the second course in the All American Forms of Music with Mark Lair, and I have a group of 10 ladies that just love him! I just announced that our last session will be next week and one participant said, 'I will be here if I have to come in an ambulance!' That about sums up how much they are enjoying this course. Thanks so much for the opportunity to offer this to our residents and community."

Senior College is a collaboration between Southwest Minnesota State University, Minnesota West Community and Technical College and the Good Samaritan Society to provide seniors an opportunity to expand their knowledge through courses that interest them. Courses are taught by experienced instructors who share an interest with their students in the topics. It doesn’t matter whether your formal education ended before you graduated from high school or whether you have a doctoral degree — the purpose of these courses is to learn and have fun!
The Senior College courses are provided via DVD to Good Samaritan communities in several states. You will be able to attend class right where you live, along with your friends.
A series of courses is offered twice each year. A variety of topics has been offered in the past, from areas such as art, history, politics, literature, religion, health and more! Seniors enjoy the opportunity to learn new things as well as to engage in thoughtful discussions with their friends. Ask your Good Samaritan Housing Director about Senior College in your community!
