LEWISTON — The Maine Senior College Network was named “Best in Maine for Senior Education” in Downeast Magazine’s Reader’s Choice Poll for 2013.

The MSCN staff accepted the award at a winner’s reception hosted by Downeast Magazine. The Reader’s Choice Poll is featured in the July issue of Downeast Magazine.

The Maine Senior College Network, organized in 1997 at the University of Southern Maine, is a consortium of 17 independent learning centers from York to Fort Kent. Courses include foreign languages, mathematics, literature, art and religion to the history of opera, all for a minimal tuition and annual membership, starting from $25. There are no tests, papers, or grades — just intellectual stimulation for those over the age of 50.

Those who live in USM’s Lewiston-Auburn Senior College area and surrounding towns are invited to access the website at www.usm.maine.edu/seniorcollege for more information, or call and leave name and contact phone number at the volunteer line: 753-6610. Phone calls will be returned.
