More Options for OLLI Classes and Connections in 2021-2022!

  • In-person classes are back! About half of the approximately 100 fall classes will take place on our campuses at the Ashland Campbell Center and Medford Higher Education Center.
  • Online options will continue. Over the past year a significant number of OLLI students and instructors discovered that Zoom course delivery offers convenient access, a greater number of "seats," and satisfying class interactions. Forty-seven Fall 2021 classes will be available in this format.
  • Annual membership provides great value. A full-year member can make unlimited selection from among 100 or so courses in each of the fall, winter and spring terms; participate in discussion and shared interest groups; and attend social activities for a single annual fee of $150 and no per-course tuition. Scholarships are available. Click here to join now.
  • Fall 2021 Catalog coming soon! Member households will receive a mailed copy of the almost 100 course offerings by July 26. The catalog will also be posted online then and course registration for fall will begin.
  • Back-to-School Kickoff. Preview the newly renovated Campbell Center classrooms and all-new member lounge at an Opening Celebration on September 9. Details to follow.

We hope you'll be part of our learning community this coming year!
