OLLI at UCI is offering a half-year membership fee of $70 for the Spring 2007 term, valid from February 2007 - June 2007 and good for all OLLI at UCI course offerings.
OLLI members are people who are intellectually curious; people who are interested in discovering new facts and sharing new ideas; people who love to read, analyze and take part in spirited discussion.
As OLLI celebrates its silver anniversary at Northwestern, a record 750 students in their 50s through 90s are lining up for non-credit peer led study groups for the pure joy of learning.
We sometimes say, 'People come here not to be taught, but to learn,'" OLLI director Judy Mann says.
Open-ended discussions, not lectures, are the cornerstones of OLLI classes.
