Enrollment is now open for senior-adult, online-only educational classes offered by the Oklahoma State University Osher Lifelong Learning Institute this fall. With 25 class offerings and topics ranging from art, literature, history and science, there is something for everyone.
OLLI, open to people age 50 or older, is designed to keep seniors active and social through classes, lectures, workshops, travel opportunities and special events. The fall session will be offered in an online format via Zoom due to ongoing health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Meeting online is an enjoyable way to continue learning and engaging with our amazing instructors and seeing friends as well as making new ones, said Robbin Davis, OLLI director. “While we will miss seeing your smiling faces in person and getting hugs from friends, it is important that we continue to stay safe and do our part to keep each other healthy.”
Online courses begin Sept. 21 and include options such as the Movies of Doris Day, the Tulsa Race Massacre, Politics and Policies, Medication Safety for Seniors and Caregivers, Theatre Through the Ages, Watercolors, Short-Form Creative Writing, a History of Oklahoma City, Armchair Travels and more.
“Anyone who is interested in never retiring from learning should consider an OLLI class,” Davis said. “There are no tests or grades, just learning for pure pleasure.”
Each online course is $25, in addition to a $40 annual membership fee. Those seeking unlimited attendance to courses offered in the fall, spring and summer sessions can purchase a premium annual membership for $200.
