Interested in Learning for Fun?

lifelong learner written on chalkboardInterested in learning, just for fun? Are you starting to write? Would you like to “go to school” without the angst of early morning classes, tests, and grades?

All of these are possible with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Northwestern University.

There always seems to be at least one group discussing politics, literature, economics, history or science. This past year, study groups focused on the Joffrey Ballet, the movies of the Coen Brothers and John Sayles, photography on the streets of Chicago, and quantum physics — to name just a few.

Study groups, organized by peers, for “seasoned learners” (people ages 50+) are offered all four seasons in Chicago and Evanston. The summer session begins July 6 and runs through Aug. 5.


Forward Chicago, an all-volunteer nonprofit organization, envisions our neighborhoods as model communities for people of all ages, where residents can age in place while remaining active, engaged and influential.
