About OLLI

Today I gave my final OLLI lecture for the Spring term. My five World Affairs topics this term were East Asia, Southern Asia, the Middle East and North Africa, Oceania, and Antarctica.

We aren't scheduled to do a series in the Fall; perhaps Spring, 2018, will be my next series. My other five topics are Eastern Europe, Western Europe, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Canada/Alaska.

If you don't know OLLI, it stands for Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. Its purpose is to organize and offer enrichment/edutainment courses for seniors at a quite modest price.

OLLI chapters are normally associated with a university or college campus, although the courses they offer are much less formal than college courses - no tests, no grades, no credit, attendance optional, show up if you enjoy it.

It's a great way to keep your mind active and have some fun too.
