Come to the 6th Annual OLLI Open House on Saturday, July 20, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm to experience a multitude of ways to pollinate your mind with fresh ideas and information. This event, sponsored by Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at SOU, is a free, public celebration of community connections. It kicks off OLLI’s 2019-2020 academic year with a preview of 140 course offerings for fall term and provides opportunities to visit the exhibits of 30 community partner nonprofits, interact with OLLI faculty, enter to win door prizes and enjoy free tasty treats donated by Rogue Valley retirement communities. You can pick up the Fall 2019 OLLI Course Catalog and new OLLI Community Partner Directory.
This year's Open House will be held on the main floor of OLLI’s Medford campus at the RCC/SOU Higher Education Center (HEC). Directions to the HEC and parking locations are here. Note: parking in downtown Medford is not enforced on weekends, so parking is free. While all attendees will be able to enter the drawings for five valuable prizes, eligibility for the Grand Prize drawing of gift certificates to downtown Medford businesses valued at over $375 is only open to those who pre-register and attend.
