The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Casper College is holding a special membership drive through Sept. 30, 2021.

OLLI at Casper College is offering an exclusive discount to new and past members who will pay just $75 for the remaining 2021 membership year and all of 2022. Under this limited-time offer, new and past members will save 20% off the cost of 2021 and 2022 memberships. They will receive five complimentary classes for the fall 2021 session and five complimentary classes for 2022.

“We realize that many of our past members didn’t renew during the pandemic, and we’d like to see them return,” said Chelse DePaolo-Lara, director of adult education and lifelong learning. “We came up with this special offer for past members and for anyone new to OLLI.”

The upcoming fall semester has 59 classes, several of which feature a field trip. Classes are geared toward those 50 and older, but anyone over 18 is welcome to join. Classes cover a wide variety of interesting topics, including those in arts, crafts, and hobbies; culinary; health and wellness; history; life and leisure; and science and technology.

In addition to the classes, membership includes free social events, newsletters, and the opportunity to learn new things and meet new people. “OLLI is such a wonderful opportunity for those over 50 to remain actively learning and experiencing life,” DePaolo-Lara noted. “At OLLI, members ‘come for the classes and stay for the friends.’”

To take advantage of this offer and help OLLI at Casper College increase its membership, go to caspercollege.edu/olli or call 307-268-3401.
