Welcome to The Evergreen Forum. We are well into our second decade! Our program has grown dramatically over the past 13 years, from 40 participants the first semester to more than 500 recently. We are an entirely volunteer organization sponsored by the Princeton Senior Resource Center and a member of the Roads Scholar Institute Network.
The Forum provides stimulating daytime study and discussion programs for adults and encourages active participation for those who enjoy learning for its own sake. Our course leaders are drawn from teachers and other professionals, devoted to their subject and wishing to share their enthusiasm. Most of the courses take place in the Suzanne Patterson Building or at Monument Hall in Princeton. A few will be off-site at the Arts Council and elsewhere.
The classes and course descriptions for the spring semester may be viewed by clicking on the "Course List" page at left.
The lottery for oversubscribed classes has been held. You may register for classes that still have openings after the lottery by registering in person at the office. Classes begin February 29.
Due to the popularity of The Evergreen Forum and our commitment to small discussion-based classes, we use a lottery system to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to take a class. All registrations submitted in any form between January 5 and January 31 will be considered equally.
1. Designate a 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice on the registration form. Over-subscribed courses will be populated by lottery, so please list a second or third choice.
2. First choice classes that are oversubscribed will be placed in lottery. People who do not get their first choice will be placed in their second or third choice if there is space.
3. Designate if you want to take a second course. Second course slots will be filled by lottery after the first round of classes is assigned. You may only take a second course once everyone has been assigned to a first course.
4. Submit payment for only your FIRST choice class with registration. Any additional payments or credits will be made after class assignments have been set. The refund policy remains the same: you may receive a full refund if it is requested prior to processing your application, or a refund less a $10 processing fee until the end of the first class session. No refunds will be made after that point.
Please note: Payment will be processed at the time of registration. If you are not registered for a class, it may be 2-3 weeks before we process the refund.
FEES: $75 for 6 - 8 week courses. $50 for 4 - 5 week courses. Financial assistance is available to those who are income eligible. Please make a request to PSRC Director, Susan Hoskins.
The Evergreen Forum maintains a strong commitment to small, participatory classes. Please help us make this experiment successful.
We are delighted to have been able to form a community of people who are interested in lifelong learning and look forward to seeing many of you in the upcoming semester.
