OLLI activities and classes are geared toward adults ages 50 and older. Osher is part of the College of Outreach & Distance Education.
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Texas Tech University (OLLI at TTU) is launching its spring semester of classes and special events.
The institute provides fun and intellectually stimulating learning opportunities for adults ages 50 and older. Class offerings this spring include current affairs, beginning chess, American presidents in film, mysteries, economics, world religions, eBay and more.
Special events range from Dinner and Drama, to Lunch and Learning, to “Hidden Lubbock” field trips, Readers’ Circle and discussion groups.
Individuals may become official members of the institute and enjoy various benefits such as free members-only classes and events, as well as discounted fees on Osher programs and other Texas Tech activities and events.
Organizers encourage early registration since classes tend to fill up quickly and spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Individuals who apply for membership in the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute by Feb. 15 may register to attend one class at no charge for the spring semester. A member who recruits a new member will receive the same offer – a free class.
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Texas Tech offers classes as an opportunity to learn something new: no tests, no grades.
