OLLI is offering a host of exciting lecture classes this winter session, which will be held Jan. 23-March 17. One of the new Wednesday classes, titled “Documentaries: Eight Films, Eight Styles, Eight Incredible Stories,” will be taught by Logan Crow, founder and chief editor of MondoCelluloid.com, at OLLI’s downtown location. Other winter session topics include Understanding Economic Theory and Principles, The History of Sea Warfare, Heritage Planning, Folk Guitar, Senior Yoga, and many others. The SUN catalog, with detailed descriptions of the classes, will be available Dec. 5.
Barbara White, OLLI’s executive director, also wishes to let EmeriTies readers know that OLLI is looking for volunteer instructors. “It would be a wonderful opportunity for our emeriti to consider teaching for us,” she said. “Retired faculty who still have a desire to be part of a classroom can teach their passion. Sessions are only eight weeks long (once per week), and there are no tests to give, no evaluations. The pay is the joy of being back in the classroom.”
There are currently three locations for classes: the HS&D Building on the CSULB campus, OLLI Downtown and OLLI Leisure World. For more information and membership fees, please call the OLLI at CSULB Office at 562-985-8237, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or visit its website at www.csulb.edu/centers/olli.
