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.

In-person sessions are held at two locations in Greenfield: The John Zon Community Center (35 Pleasant Street) and the Garden Cinemas (361 Main Street).  Presentations run from 2-2.5 hours, with most of the symposia running from 2-4pm.

We can not accept cash or check payment on-site at Senior Symposia events.
