• Fall Registration is OPEN- Courses are filling up FAST

  • The OLLI-on-Campus Program continues to grow as our members find it invigorating to be on a college campus and to reap the benefts the location affords. The OLLI-on-Campus Managers, Joanne and Jackie, have worked tirelessly over the spring and summer to put together a variety of courses for our members that stimulate ALL parts of the mind and body. Research on the aging brain indicates that learning a new skill, working with your hands to strengthen eye-hand coordination and improve processing speed, and stimulating your mind with new ideas all help in healthy aging. You will see our focus on these research fndings in the courses we have planned for the Fall 2019 program. We hope you will reach beyond your current comfort level and try something new or engage your mind in a new area!

    Here's how to sign up (we will be reviewing registration numbers on September 2 so please sign up ASAP so we know if we have met the required minimum number to offer the course.  Thank you!)
