Testimonials from our members taken from a recent survey:

“[My membership with] OLLI provides me the opportunity to take interesting and stimulating courses, trips and eating out with OLLI friends.”

“I have met some amazing people through OLLI. It was not the reason that I joined but has been a bonus I cannot now live without. Many of the people I cherish I never would have met in my former life. The fact that I interact with people in their 60's through 90's has given me a new perspective and broadened my horizons - a blessing.”

“It adds value and purpose to my retirement years."

"Information from OLLI gives me an incentive to work through my physical limitations to attend classes.” 

“It has given me an opportunity to not feel so much like I am 'vegetating'  in my old age.”
