      • Friday, Jan 16, 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM
  • Lottery Results Email: Rescheduled
    • This email, which lists your post-lottery registered and wait listed workshops, has been postponed due to the winter storm that caused the OLLI office to close on Monday, January 26, the original scheduled date for the email. Please continue to check the OLLI home page for storm related updates.
  • Online open registration: Monday, February 2
    • Following the priority registration and lottery, any workshops that still have open seats will be available for online open registration resuming on Monday, February 2. Unlike the lottery-based registration, this opportunity to add another workshop to your list is "first-come/first-served".
  • First day of workshops: Monday, February 16
    • Workshops for Spring 2015 are scheduled to begin on Monday, February 16 and ending on Friday, May 8. After the experience last winter with blizzards, icy roads, and cancelled workshops, OLLI will begin our Spring Semester a little bit later than usual. We hope this will reduce lost days for bad weather at startup.
    • OLLI's Spring 2015 semester will be 12 consecutive weeks. There will be no break during the university's spring break (Monday, March 16 - Friday, March 20). This allows OLLI to finish its Spring Semester before the university begins final exams on May 11.
