A Place for You... Fall 2021

Deer wandering on campus

OLLI | September 1st, 2021

From Sheila Rocker Heppe, OLLI Director & Kim Laney, OLLI Coordinator

“Come to the woods, for here is rest. There is no repose like that of
the green deep woods. Sleep in forgetfulness of all ill.”  
                                                                — John Muir

As fall arrives, Humboldt State University students return to our community, and we retain our hope for a continued move toward normal.

In an abundance of caution, the majority of OLLI courses will continue to be offered online this fall. We remain steadfast in our commitment to the health and safety of our community. 

Before OLLI members will be able to attend an in-person class or visit the HSU campus, the students and instructors will need to follow the HSU protocol, and provide proof of vaccination, or agree to provide negative COVID-19 test results before each gathering. 

More information will be available as we present more in-person OLLI classes and events in the future.

OLLI at HSU continues to provide learning activities and opportunities to stay connected with the community. Free weekly Brown Bag Lunch online presentations on a variety of subjects and topics, will be presented Mondays at noon, beginning Sept. 13. Each Friday morning, OLLI offers conversations open to everyone — details about Let’s Connect with Tracey Barnes-Priestley may be found here.

OLLI at HSU offers the Brown Bag Lunch presentations and Let’s Connect free of charge, thanks to the generous support of the Friends of OLLI. These thoughtful members of our community share their resources to extend lifelong learning opportunities to our everyone in our community. Please see the full list of the Friends of OLLI here. 

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.
