1. Getting the Most Out of the Road Scholar Social Network

    Last August we launched the Road Scholar Social Network, our new-and-improved online community that makes meeting other lifelong learners, discussing programs, and sharing experiences easier than ever! With an array of new features, real-time email alerts and easy-to-use privacy controls, the Social Network allows you to connect with participants like never before. Here are two simple ways you can use the network to meet your fellow enrollees:

    Get on the Discussion Boards

    Every Road Scholar program has its own page on our website, and every program page has its own Discussion Board, where enrolled participants, future participants, or people who are just curious about a program can come to meet fellow lifelong learners, ask questions, seek advice, arrange for a roommate or a ride and share helpful information. Once you’ve logged into your account, find your program’s Discussion Board by clicking the My Programs link on the left side of the page and then clicking the “Discuss this Program” button next to the program you want to talk about. You can also search for your program page by its title or number. Once you’re on the right program page, click the Discussion Board tab on the left.

    Adjust Your Privacy Settings

    Another great way to get the conversation started with your fellow program participants is by switching the first notification in your Privacy Settings from “No” to “Yes”. This will alert other Social Network members when you enroll in the same program date as them, giving you the chance to meet before your program! Customize these and other notifications and privacy settings in the Edit Profile & Privacy Settings page, which you can easily access  by clicking the link next to your profile picture on any Social Network page.
