Wednesday, March 9, 2011 • Posted March 9, 2011

Texas Tech University’s (TTU) Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) is introducing its program to the Fredericksburg area with an introductory offer to "sample" our innovative non-credit courses designed for adults age 50+.

OLLI is providing a "sample" of the spring curriculum with two courses to be broadcast from TTU in Lubbock to Texas Tech University at Fredericksburg. These classes will meet at the new Hill Country University Center, 2818 E. US Hwy 290 in Fredericksburg.

The OLLI sample classes to be presented are, "The Quran, the Bible and the New Testament" on Thursdays, March 10, 17 & 24 from 5:30-7:00 p.m. and "Economics 2011" on Mondays, March 21 & 28 from 3:30-5:00 p.m. A special and discounted price of $25 per person per class is good through March 2011 for broadcast to TTU at Fredericksburg.

"We invite older adults from the Fredericksburg and Central Texas region to learn about OLLI," said Emma Carrasco, coordinator of Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. "Our main philosophy is to celebrate learning in a relaxed, intellectually stimulating and accepting environment. Our instructors are primarily retired or current faculty from Texas Tech University or from other qualified professions who enjoy sharing their knowledge and skills with others."

OLLI at TTU is an 8 year old self-funded, membership organization endowed by the Bernard Osher Foundation. It offers intellectual stimulation and civic engagement through non-credit classes designed for individuals who enjoy the pleasure and curiosity of learning.

Classes are provided each fall and spring semester. Offerings are held in the afternoons and evenings to meet different needs. For more information or to enroll, please call Emma at (806) 742-7202 ext. 251. Please visit our website to learn more about OLLI.
