Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Rutgers University

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Rutgers University (OLLI-RU) is for individuals over 50 who are looking for an opportunity to expand their horizons, learn in an engaging environment, and meet new friends. OLLI-RU offers noncredit education that is stimulating, friendly, and informal–there are no tests and no grades! You will be part of a learning community that is full of diversity, insight, wisdom, intellectual and cultural stimulation, and friendship.


Be sure to list alternate courses in the event your first choices are not available or are at capacity. Many classes reach capacity very quickly; listing alternate selections will ensure registration in another class.
