Osher Lifelong Learning Institute News
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UNLV (OLLI at UNLV) has built its reputation on keeping members’ minds nimble through thought-provoking courses and discussions. The educational benefits of OLLI are so well known that people may be surprised to see several physical activity courses on the weekly schedule. Tai Chi, dance, and chair exercise courses have all developed a following among OLLI members.
More than 60 years ago, what we know today as UNLV’s Paradise Campus opened as a grade school for children living in the developing city of Las Vegas. A generation later, the retired adults of UNLV’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) that currently call the campus home are helping Paradise-area students with a holiday supply drive. During the first two weeks of November OLLI members collected educational games, books, and school supplies for at-risk elementary students attending the Paradise Professional Development School.
