Elderscholars in a lecture

The region's premier life-long learning opportunity for adults over 55

Education. Fellowship. Fun. 

ElderscholarSM was developed at Roanoke College in the fall of 1984 as a spin-off of the national Elderhostel program. For over three decades, ElderscholarSM has been among the most visible and popular examples of Roanoke College's commitment to providing educational opportunities to seniors and retirees.
