Have you tried OLLI online?

OLLI’s Summer 2020 Online program is the best-bet for keeping actively engaged in life while COVID-19 keeps us all close to home. Join OLLI this summer and make positive connections with new friends across town and across the region!

“OLLI keeps us connected and freshens our minds almost daily. Zoom has saved our OLLI life! We enjoy seeing fellow students and friends face-to-face on the screen. What a relief it is to be able to interact in an accommodating learning setting! We feel so grateful to UC Davis for offering such an important program. We hope that all classes will continue via Zoom so that all of us in social distancing are able to continue in our warm, connected community.” – Benay and Shel Bernstein, OLLI members
