Registration for winter courses at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the CSUSB Palm Desert Campus is now open.

OLLI is a program designed for adults 50 and over who want to experience learning for the fun of it.

The program offers non-credit, university-level courses, but without the grades, tests or homework.  Special seminars, lectures, educational excursions and social activities keep seasoned adults active and relevant.

Annual memberships are $75 and run from July 1 through June 30. They also include a parking permit. 

Then members can choose the courses they want to take and pay by the course. Six-week courses are $50 each; three-week courses are $30.

The winter semester courses begin the week of January 29 and run through April 2.

“If your retirement plans do not include a rocking chair, this is the place for you,” said Angela Allen, OLLI director. “It’s a place to rediscover what you love.”

There is a choice of learning venues, including online, hybrid and in person at the Cal State San Bernardino, Palm Desert Campus on Cook Street.
