OLLI's summer semester will double in length this year to six weeks.

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Florida State University announced Friday that it has expanded its summer semester.  

OLLI extended its traditional three-week Maymester to a six-week-plus summer session for a host of courses, clubs and activities. 

The expanded schedule will run through May, June and July and feature a broad array of classes including study of Winston Churchill, the history of rock n roll, and ancient Greece.

Registration opens April 19 and the semester begins May 3. Most classes will be held virtually via Zoom but some small, face-to-face classes are included on the schedule. 

Membership in OLLI at FSU is open to all adults 50 and older who love to learn in a stress-free environment where there are no tests, no homework and no required reading. Membership also includes club activities – some face-to-face, including paddlers and walking.

There are no educational prerequisites. Instructors typically come from the faculty of local institutions of higher education and area experts, but Zoom extends the range of instructors and students who can join OLLI’s classes and activities, regardless of location.

Spanish club, book clubs, cooking classes presented by OLLI chefs, and virtual tours of art, nature and other attractions are among the offerings.
