Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Oklahoma State University

From the arts to state history to travel, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Oklahoma State University offers a full slate of learning opportunities for active adults age 50 or older. Classes meet throughout the OKC metro area and beyond, with spring enrollment beginning this month.

Learn, Grow, and Make Friends

OLLI-OSU holds classes in Oklahoma City, Stillwater, Tulsa, and Bartlesville. They also offer a robust selection of online courses, as well as one-day and multi-day trips.

OLLI-OSU is part of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute network, with 125 chapters across the U.S. Class Instructors are current and former faculty, community leaders, topic experts and other OLLI members. If the idea of navigating a college campus sounds daunting, don’t worry. Most courses take place off campus in user-friendly locations like libraries, museums or senior centers.

Students must be an OLLI member to have access, and there are two annual membership levels to chose from: The $200 Premium level includes year-round, unlimited attendance to all courses offered in Stillwater, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Bartlesville and online. The second is the $40 À-La-Carte Membership which allows you to select individual courses and then pay $25 for each course enrollment. Both options are very reasonable costs compared to traditional college course fees.

Spring Session Begins Soon

Enrollment for the spring session opens January 17, with classes running from February 13 to April 14. As always, a wide variety of enticing offerings are on tap. One of the most exciting is a trip to Costa Rica, the first international adventure OLLI has offered. Closer to home, there is a day trip to Tulsa scheduled in April.

OKC classes will include a local restaurant crawl, a “town hall” series with presentations by community leaders, and more. Online learners can join courses on subjects ranging from critical race theory to quilts from around the world.

“We are a diverse, inclusive group and everybody is welcome,” says coordinator Robbin Davis.
