Mabel Dumbrell

Senior students
In June, Mabel Dumbrell, age 88, earned concurrent undergraduate degrees in political science, history and general studies. At 70, Illeana Oostergo earned degrees in humanities, English and general studies.

They are just two of the many seniors who attend classes at SFU each year. Although only a handful obtain degrees each year, almost 1,000 students are enrolled in SFU’s popular non-credit seniors program, which has tripled in size since 2000.

The program offers 13 non-credit courses, covering everything from religion to politics, and a newly created certificate program enables seniors to become SFU alumni after completing eight non-credit courses.
