Senior Symposia

The Senior Symposia program at Greenfield Community College is a collaborative effort with area senior citizens. The program encourages seniors to continue their education through attending talks on a variety of subjects. Persons of all ages are welcome to attend Senior Sym events and participate in the lively discussions that follow the presentations.

Spring 2022 Senior Symposia will be in-person at two locations in Greenfield: The John Zon Community Center (35 Pleasant Street) and the Garden Cinemas (361 Main Street).  We will offer five 2-hour presentations and one 2.5-hour presentation, from late February to early May. Talks will be offered on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, with most of the symposia running from 2-4pm. For the safety of all, attendees must wear a mask during the presentations.

In case of inclement weather, call 413-775-1010 for information about campus closure.  If GCC is closed, the symposium scheduled for that day will be canceled.
