What Our Members Are Saying

“When you find an instructor that can spark your interest, that’s a good thing that can channel your energy in a positive way.  Lifelong learning is a process that anchors you and gives you space for yourself in  a non-threatening environment.   Learning is  a gift.”

“OLLI has been the beginning of my new life.  I didn’t know what I was going to do when I retired and being at OLLI has been meeting new people, staying connected, making new friends.”

“OLLI has kept me alive.  I’m new to the area and I need community – and it’s here.  It really is.  OLLI is a community.  They have lots of things to offer and always things that I think, “why didn’t I find this 30 years ago?” “.
