OLLI offers classes in four eight-week sessions each year for adults 50 years of age or older. The classes are taught by current and emeriti university professors, current and former industry experts, CSULB graduate students, and others with skills and knowledge in various fields and disciplines.
Computer classes range from fundamentals to graphics and the use of digital cameras, and are conducted in a 10-workstation lab by skilled instructors and coaches. Lecture classes are offered on a wide variety of topics including health, music, science, literature, creative writing, art, history, finance, politics, travel, Spanish, yoga, and bridge.
Annual OLLI membership is $40, pro-rated to $20 for both the spring and summer sessions. Tuition is $10 per lecture course and $45 per computer course, which also require an annual $40 SeniorNet membership fee.
