Learn for the love of it with OLLI.

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at the University of South Dakota lets you keep learning your whole life. With short-term, non-credit classes, OLLI offers lifelong learning opportunities for members. OLLI programs are designed for people age 50 and over, but classes are open to all ages and education levels. There are no tests and no grades, just fun!
