CSI Gold Card     Gold Card Brochure

The Gold Card is a benefit provided by the College of Southern Idaho (CSI) to the seniors of the Magic Valley.

The Gold Card is free to all citizens 60 and over in age and never needs to be renewed. This card entitles you to free tuition for accredited classes at CSI (does not waive any fees, supplies or books). Degree seeking students over 60 years of age must pay regular price for tuition.

The Gold Card also allows seniors into CSI sporting events for a reduced price of $1.00* (*subject to change without notice). As a student of CSI (enrolled in classes) seniors are also granted use of the library and upper level of the gymnasium for walking.

Over 60 and Getting Fit     Over 60 & Getting Fit Web Page

A FREE college-accredited program sponsored by the College of Southern Idaho. In partnership with the Office on Aging, Filer, Buhl, Shoshone, ISDB school districts, and the Jerome, Rupert and Hailey Recreation Departments.

This award-winning program emphasizes walking as low-impact cardiovascular movement, streching and resistance training in locations throughout the Magic Valley. It is geared to serve older adults with varying levels of functioning abilities during the College of Southern Idaho’s Fall and Spring semesters.

Benefits

  • Improves all aspects of cardiovascular functioning
  • Impacts maintenance of independence in old age
  • Helps preserve and restore flexibility
  • Improves strength, balance and posture

Staying active becomes more important than ever during the second half of life. In fact, what has been considered “normal aging” may have more to do with a sedentary lifestyle than with the aging process. In our ten-week study period, the program participants, regardless of their age, made significant improvements in balance, muscular strength, flexibility and cardiovascular endurance using established functional measurement standards for older people.
