The Road Scholar program welcomes residents and commuters

Do you live locally? Classes typically take place in the morning and early afternoon. If you are an adult, live locally, and are interested in attending as a Road Scholars commuter, you can pay a fee and enjoy all classes, field trips, lunches, and dinners.

Live out of the area? Stay on campus for a week! Adults that choose to stay on campus for any of the programs will stay on the MSMC campus in Sakac Hall, our newest residence hall, with beautiful views of the Hudson River.
