Keep Learning - The Fun Way - at OLLI Classes

OLLI Spring Classes are the perfect opportunity to keep learning about topics you love, or to try learning about something completely new!  The relaxed, social atmosphere make OLLI Classes a fun way to go "back to school."

Because "word of mouth" is OLLI's best advertising method, we'd love to see our current members bring friends to one week of classes to introduce them to our learning community.

Remember, "bring a friend" is free - just call the Continuing Education office to let us know who you are bringing.  That way, we can have name tags ready, as well as a list of classes that have space for visitors. 

For $95, you can choose four different classes that will each be held on the following Wednesdays: April 5, 12, 19, and 26.  To see a complete list of class offerings, click here.  

Take a look at this unique class opportunity, for example:
The Fan's Guide to Sports Injuries (class #13)
This course will focus on common sports injuries sustained across the lifespan.  Pertinent anatomy, mechanism of injury, and treatment (surgical and non-surgical) will be discussed in easy to understand terms.  The class instructor is Steve Tippett PT, PhD, Professor and Chair of the Department of Physical Therapy and Health Science at Bradley University with 34 years of practice as a Sports Clinical Specialist Consultant to the Bradley Sports Medicine Staff.
