OLLI Membership Year Runs July 1 through June 30

For one annual member fee of $55, OLLI provides stimulating programs and activities led by active and retired college faculty, local experts and OLLI members—all of whom are volunteers! Members have access to as many activities, events, programs and lectures as they want. There is no need to commit to six or eight weeks of any particular class—or pay anything extra for each one you attend. Most courses and events are held at these locations and on Zoom.

OLLI programs explore topics in the arts, culture, government/economics, health/wellness, local/world history, languages/literature and science/technology in single-session lectures, multi-week classes, interest groups and hands-on workshops. Outdoor activities, field trips and special events (some with modest fees) add a host of other enriching activities.

We hope you will embrace OLLI's commitment to lifelong learning and continue to help us grow!
