What members say…

  • Great camaraderie“OLLI is a celebration with many ‘wow’ moments, great camaraderie, knowledgeable instructors and shared laughter and memories.”
  • Love of learning“None of my former teachers living or dead would be likely to describe me as a highly motivated student. They should see me now: I never thought I could love school this much.”
  • Rewards of giving back“The rewards for volunteering are adding more to my life than a bank could hold.”
  • Why not!“Continuing education, a quest for knowledge and curiosity have always been priorities for me. At my age, I am often asked, ‘Why are you still a student?’ My answer is, ‘Why not?’”
