Brooklyn colleges are seeing an increase in the amount of baby boomers who attend their campuses. 

Officials at Kingsborough Community College say they have so many baby boomers attending classes, they decided to offer free programs for seniors. 

The college offers three free programs for seniors including '50 Plus Wellness' and 'Aging Mastery.'

Officials say the programs are intended for those 50 and older, and other courses like 'My Turn' is for those 60 and older.

There are also over 400 other programs with options ranging from history and music to exercise.

Officials say students can choose to take classes where they receive grades and tests or do not.
