The fall session begins on Monday, Oct. 23, with a week of free courses that are open to the public. The regular term starts Thursday, Nov. 2, and includes six-week and three-week courses with topics in the arts, history, literature, economics, natural sciences, philosophy and more. Several film courses will also be offered.
“In addition to our traditional courses, we offer a variety of free member events, discussion groups, and a fabulous educational travel program,” said Sue Anderson, director of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. “Our membership and program offerings have both grown significantly. It’s an exciting time for our OLLI.”
