The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at NCSU has opened its registration. OLLI provides non-credit short courses, study trips, and special events for adults 50 and older. Topics span both the liberal arts and sciences. Programs range from one-time lectures to six-week courses.
There are around 75 offerings, which you can browse here. If you are not already a member, you may register for an annual membership costing $50 here. As a member, you will receive a digital catalog each spring and fall of course offerings, as well as emails with invitations to the monthly socials hosted on Zoom. You will also have access to trainings on Zoom and other technologies used during this historic period.
Some classes this session which may be of interest include: Down on the Farm: Yesterday and Today by Dr. Gary Moore, Professor Emeritus, NC State University, or Landscape and Design: From Cloister to Public Parks by Dr. Harry Titus, retired professor of Wake Forest University. From a primer on what's new with taxes in 2020 to a walking tour of Oberlin Village, there is something for everyone.
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is a national program supported by The Bernard Osher Foundation. Instructors work on a volunteer basis. There are four OLLI programs in North Carolina and 120 nationally.
