Lecture and Lunch Series

SUNY Adirondack Continuing Education is pleased to present a Lecture and Lunch Series, formerly known as the Senior Lecture Series. The lectures will be presented by a combination of SUNY Adirondack distinguished faculty members and local experts.

Each hour long lecture is followed by a 15-minute question and answer period.

A hot lunch and morning refreshments are included each day, giving attendees an opportunity to get to know each other and discuss the lectures and the subject matter presented.

Lunch will be served in the Student Housing Building. It is a short walk across campus from where the lectures are held. Questions? Call us at 518.743.2238.
