Welcome Back!
Many OLLI courses begin this week, with more coming as the term progresses. We are happy to welcome back returning members, and extend a warm welcome to our many new members. With so many courses allowing an unlimited number of students, there are still plenty of open courses to choose, if you have time for another. View the online catalog.

One Credit Form Now Available
Your OLLI classes qualify as SOU one credit courses, providing benefits for OLLI members who sign up and for SOU's funding. The online form only takes a minute or two to fill out. The deadline to enroll is September 29, by 5:00 pm Pacific Time. The more members who participate, the more funding SOU gets from the State of Oregon, so on behalf of the SOU staff, faculty, and students who will benefit, thank you in advance for supporting the next generation of lifelong learners.

Interested in helping out? Learn more about the Open Credit Program or fill out the One Credit Form.
Fall Term Reminders
Check your spam folder for your instructor’s emails! Instructors will be sending important emails to you prior to and during your OLLI courses, and it’s easy for these to get lost in your spam folder. Please, take a moment and check your spam folder in your email account. If you see an email from your instructor, kindly mark it as “Not Spam” so you won't miss important communications.
Attending an in-person course during Fall term and wondering how to get there or where to park? Visit our Directions/Parking webpage for Google Maps and a printable parking guide.
