Temple encourages a lifetime of learning

Intellectually curious seniors have no shortage of options in Philly thanks to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) of Temple University.

Intellectually curious seniors have no shortage of options in Philly thanks to the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) of Temple University.

“It’s like a university,” director Adam Brunner explains. Classes — in everything from theater to psychology — meet weekly for 12 or 14 weeks. “Most courses are designed so each session is self-contained, so people won’t get lost if they miss a class,”?he adds.

Classes meet weekdays at Temple’s Center City site at 15th and Market, convenient to mass transportation. The $240 annual fee (less for individual terms) also covers the cost of one regular undergraduate Temple course per semester, or three per year. (These would ordinarily cost $1,000 each.)

“OLLI is an amazing deal,” Brunner says with understandable pride, “and a great resource for people who like to use their minds and want to meet others like themselves.”
