At San Jacinto College, we take pride in helping members of our community achieve their goals, in whatever form of success they choose, whether it’s earning a degree, receiving a certification, exploring new fields, or even discovering a new hobby.

Our new SeniorFocus magazine is dedicated to our more mature students who know that learning can be even greater later in life. Within each new issue, you’ll find everything from fun classes like painting and ceramics to adventurous new hobbies that San Jac can help you explore like motorcycle riding and tai chi. Need advice on planning for retirement? We have a course for that, too. Want to learn how to decorate cakes that will rival those on the Food Network? We’ve got you covered.

With resourceful ways to focus on your health, exercise tips, and even courses to help you sharpen your computer skills, you’ll have a guide to living your best life beyond the classroom as well—all right at your fingertips.

Not sure you’re ready to sign up for a part-time course or try pilates yet? SeniorFocus will also keep you up to date on the latest news from San Jacinto College and will provide a list of events happening across our campuses that you can check out for free.

So kick back, relax, and enjoy this inaugural issue of our exciting new publication. And as always, you can find information on any of our courses, non-credit classes, and fun lifelong learning opportunities at

Cheers to the golden years,

Dr. Brenda Hellyer
