Popular Program for Older Learners Coming to Oroville
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
OLLI is a peer-led, learning in retirement organization that offers a wide variety of non-credit classes and activities for adults, age 55+ or retired. Spouses of members may be of any age. OLLI at CSU, Chico currently offers 50 classes to approximately 700 members, ages 55+ (or retired) primarily in the Chico area. Composed of seasoned learners from all walks of life, OLLI members pursue learning for pure pleasure: there are no tests, no grades and no age cap. OLLI's motto is "Learning Never Retires."
Courses range from a popular physics class to lectures on mythology, poetry, birds and cribbage. “It’s a great way to make new friends and socialize with people who share similar interests,” says Caput. “Establishing OLLI in Oroville gives many of our folks the opportunity to be intellectually stimulated and involved in a peer-led organization committed to life enrichment.”
The annual membership fee for OLLI is $75 for the full academic year; $50 for spring session only. Membership includes classes, a University library courtesy card, newsletters and a luncheon program at general meetings.
