Eighty-three-year-old great-grandmother Barbara Ingram, 83, is enrolled in her fourth semester of continuing education at Harvard Extension School.

Looking for mental stimulation and personal enrichment, Ingram studied Harvard’s long history in a online course with HES Dean Nancy Coleman during the Fall 2021 semester.

Her rigorous study habits have earned her accolades from her community, including a billboard from an anonymous supporter, as reported by local news station, KTVT: “83 years old and back in college at Harvard. Mental wellness for seniors. You’re never too old for knowledge.”
