Osher Lifelong Learning Membership

OLLI@Pacific Membership

With the belief that curiosity never retires, OLLI@Pacific offers a rich array of classes and learning opportunities for adults who are 50 or older.  You can explore academic and general interest classes in an atmosphere that is intellectually challenging, but without the stress of tests or grades.  Our members are people with a desire to learn and seek intellectual stimulation.  They want to experience new and creative ways of self-expression, explore new ideas with peers, take an active part in shaping the world around us, and build new friendships.

Everyone age 50 or better can join.  Members are invited from all backgrounds, a college education or previous association with the university is not a requirement for membership.  The only prerequisite for joining is a desire to learn.
