  • Testimonials - What OLLI at DU members say about our courses and instructors...


              Get Your Kicks on Route 66 with Dr. Mark Payler. 

                                                                                 “Mark's enthusiasm for his subject turns what could be an ordinary travelogue (and then you get to A and then to B and than to C....) into a fun adventure that makes you want to jump into your own car and hit the road.

                  Irish Immigrants in Early Colorado with Dr. James Walsh

                                                                                  "Jim has so much experience and presence based on his own passion and empathy. He especially resonates with his personal experiences of Irish Immigration."

    .                Dementia 101 + Reducing Your Risk with JJ Jordan

                                                                                   “I'm amazed at how much information we got and there was no fluff. To receive that firehouse of information and to have it feel manageable is a tribute to JJ's excellent slides, her high energy/fast-paced delivery, and her sense of humor. She is a  true professional”.

                    The Swing Era- "Jazz at its Peak" with Robert Joyce

                                                                                     “Exceeded my expectations. I hope to take more classes from him in the future. I am now taking the first of the blues and it too is outstanding. It has been a joy to know him”.


    .                Mindful Self-Care Journaling with Carolyn Varvel

                                                                                     “Carolyn was well versed in the material and the presentation was well organized. She was a phenomenal facilitator and treated each of the participants with care, kindness, and understanding”.

                                Watercolor Pencils for Beginners with Mitra Verma

                                                                                      “Mitra welcomed all questions and was able to provide some critique of our work using Zoom. By having the class on Zoom, we could see her technique”.
