A Place for You...

OLLI | June 16th, 2020

The year 2020 has brought many unexpected changes to our lives and society. OLLI at HSU has transformed lifelong learning courses and experiences to a fully online format, and created new ways to stay connected as we create safe spaces for ourselves and our community. 

On this website and in the OLLI catalog you will find opportunities to celebrate lifelong learning on the North Coast. We invite you to join OLLI or renew your membership and participate in fifteen $15 courses to commemorate OLLI at HSU’s first 15 years as a learning community. These special $15 classes are available to OLLI members only. Please know that all other OLLI classes are available to anyone, by including a $25 non-member fee per class. If you are not 50 yet and would like to join OLLI at HSU, contact us for more information.

Stay connected by participating in free Monday Brown Bag Lunch Online Presentations on a variety of subjects and topics. On Fridays, OLLI offers conversations open to everyone – details about Let’s Connect with Tracey Barnes-Priestley can be found here. 

OLLI at HSU offers these opportunities free of charge, thanks to the generous support of the Friends of OLLI. These thoughtful friends share their resources to extend lifelong learning opportunities to our community. OLLI at HSU could not exist without these donations, and we are forever grateful for the outpouring of support during these especially difficult times brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Finally, we acknowledge the transitions and awakenings happening in our country and the world, as space is created to express and hear all voices and experiences. As lifelong learners, we know we learn best by listening, and we teach best by our actions.
