The Originals

This year mark's 20 years of lifelong learning in the Morgantown area. Each of the individuals pictured were originally involved with the Appalachian Lifelong Learners program, which later became OLLI at WVU.

OLLI Extra Mile Award

Connie McCluskey was honored at the Annual Luncheon for her commitment and dedication to OLLI. Connie has worked hard for years to assist in the day to day operations of the office. She is most deserving of the Extra Mile Award.

A Message from Our Director

Welcome to our OLLI Fall Term! We have an exciting line-up of courses, lectures, and trips planned.
Do you have friends who ask a lot of questions, are curious or love learning? Please invite them to our Irving Goodman Annual Aging Lecture and pre-term reception (see pages 4-5 of our catalog) or to join you for a class to try OLLI (please pick up a voucher from the office).
We invite you to explore our website and “friend” us on Facebook to learn more about who we are and what we do!
In partnership with you, we can all look forward to an exhilarating semester of new interests, new opportunities, and new friends.
Let us continue “for the joy of learning!”
