Program Registration: 3:00-5:00 p.m. After you have your room assignment, come over to the Road Scholar table in the lobby to register with the program staff and get your welcome packet containing your name-tag, up-to-date schedule that reflects any last-minute changes, and other important information. If you arrive late, please ask for your packet when you check in. We will gather for a welcome reception before dinner.
In the Athenaeum Dining Room, our buffet offers choices such as beef, poultry, a fish selection, a variety of vegetables and salads, as well as breads and desserts. Beverage choices include milk, coffee, iced tea and lemonade; beer and wine available for purchase.
Orientation: The Group Leader will greet everyone and lead introductions. We will review the program theme, the up-to-date Daily Schedule and any changes, discuss safety guidelines, emergency procedures including contact numbers for key staff, roles and responsibilities, and answer any questions you may have. We will then divide into smaller groups for introductions and more detailed information about the program and our group schedules. Morning class sessions are from 8:30-10:00 a.m. and 10:30-12:00 p.m. Afternoon sessions are 1:30-3:00 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. (No afternoon sessions on Wednesday and Friday.) Each group will rotate through all the scheduled presentations. Shuttles are available to and from classes. Time has been reserved in the schedule for your personal independent exploration. The Group Leader will often be available during free time to accompany informal excursions, activities, or meals that have been excluded from the program cost. You are welcome to join if you like, with any associated costs on your own. Please note that indicated times are approximate. Program activities, schedules, and personnel may need to change due to local circumstances. In the event of changes, we will alert you as quickly as possible. Thank you for your understanding.
