Great program but bring soap, hairdryer and boots!


OMG...the program was so very interesting! Real world examples. Knowledgeable, interesting, engaging presenters AND a beautiful setting. What more could you ask for?


Exceptional program - great presenters and topics.


If you really want to know about real forensics, this is for you


Excellent program. Members of the State Trooper Detective division gave very interesting examples of actual cases and provided very interesting classes. Accommodations, meals and all leaders were well organized and quick to solve any issue. The entire program exceeded my expectations and could not have been any better. I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in this subject matter.


This program was great. The staff goes out of their way to accommodate you. Chuck does a great job coordinating. Presenters work in field and are really knowledgeable. You will learn from experts in the forensic field. The NH lakeside setting is great. The only drawback was my cabin room. Very old, needs updating. I still recommend this program and facility.


This program was fascinating and the location delightful.


If you enjoy crime shows on TV or read mysteries, you will enjoy this course. Get up close and personal with CSI techniques and descriptions of local crimes and crime scenes.


The program content was outstanding and far exceeded my expectations. I will never look at a drop of blood or a footprint the same again. And, I now fully understand why a number (.08, for example) can be identified to determine legal impairment due to alcohol, but will probably never be identified to determine legal impairment due to opioids or other drugs.


Excellent introduction to CSI work. Conducted by real professionals who do the work every day, and are skilled at presenting detailed and technical information so that it can be understood by "normal" people. The group was highly attentive and generally knowledgeable about the topic, an added benefit. Nice setting in the NH woods, and fall colors were great.


If you are interested in CSIs and murder mysteries then you will love this program! We learned alot along with other like-minded compatriots. The presenters were knowledgeable and all had a sense of humor. It was interesting and fun!


Beautiful setting with relaxed atmosphere and well qualified experts and interesting presentations. This program is mainly lecture, with trips that include bus rides to more seated lecture and minor tours. It worked well for older and disabled/limited participants, but could also be difficult for anyone not enjoying prolonged sitting. One can get exercise, but we had rain through much of the week. Wonderful hosts and delicious food with a large variety of options, typical American meals (no dinners off site, bag lunches when touring). We had a large group (over 30), but everyone traveling solo had their own room. I was initially envious of those who got lakeside cabins, until I saw the inside. I had a two story condo with skylight and a double bed in the loft. I was also able to get a strong wifi signal in my room, due to its proximity to the chapel. The cabins were in need of renovation and had very small shower stalls. I was glad I drove and brought my own bedding; the bedspreads and blankets are old and not laundered in between guests. I felt very guilty that my room was significantly nicer than the cabins I saw. If you have good weather, and enough daylight, you can walk around the lake, kayak and swim.


Lots of fun and interesting for all CSI fans. Facility and food were great.


This was my first Road Scholar Program and was pleasantly surprised on how friendly, accommodating, and professional the whole program was presented. I'm looking forward to more trips with Road Scholar for myself, my family, and my grandsons. Road Scholar has so much for all families no matter their ages, sizes, or interest. Come on and join the adventure!


Chuck was a wonderful leader. I learned a lot from the presenters. Gave new perspective on our country.


This was our first Rhoad Scholar experience. We are definately planning on go to more program offerings. We would absolutely recommend Rhode Scholar to our friends.
