Step two - Become engaged in building our page!  Would you be willing to send us posts once in a while?  A picture or a thought related to a course you are taking?  An ASC event you attended?  We would like to build up a whole cadre of folks who will take this on.  If you'd be willing, please email us at  We'll be in touch!

Spotlight on Faculty

Read Ann Caswell's article on a star volunteer instructor, Ben Blaney! 

Ben has the distinction of having taught the most classes of any Acadia Senior College instructor.

Are you willing to help?

Have you ever ordered a book, clothing, or anything online? Registering for a class online will be a similar experience.

We would like to train some helpers who are confident with basic computer skills to help others with the online course registration process. 

Interested in helping in this way? Please call or email the office for more details, or to volunteer. 207-288-9500/
