Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Stony Brook receives second endowment
With the help of many dedicated OLLI members who volunteer their time and efforts to make OLLI at Stony Brook one of the finest lifelong learning programs in the nation, director Wayne Holo and the OLLI Advisory Board are pleased to announce that the Bernard Osher Foundation, the "architect" of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute program, has awarded a second endowment to the Stony Brook Foundation to support the University's OLLI program.
For more information about this gift, visit the University's "Happenings" website and read the article, "University Receives Grant to Enhance Lifelong Learning Opportunities".
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Stony Brook University (formerly the Round Table) is open to all retired and semi-retired individuals who are interested in expanding their intellectual horizons in a university setting. Avenues for participation include: peer-taught workshops, lectures, special events, committees, and social activities.

Welcome back, OLLI Members!
Workshop confirmations and rosters
With the lottery completed, workshop confirmation emails delivered to members, and our Spring 2017 Semester underway, we hope everyone is successfully locating their workshop classrooms, meeting new people and renewing old acquaintances with your workshop leaders and member friends.
A few words about the registration lottery process
With the lottery, members register for their favorite workshops knowing that even with all the new, spacious rooms, it is still unlikely they will get every workshop requested, especially when requesting seats for the most popular workshops. The OLLI staff hopes that the workshops you were assigned through the lottery provide you with the foundation for a fun and enriching Spring 2017 semester at OLLI.
As a reminder, workshops began this spring on Monday, February 20 and will end on Friday, May 5. We plan to offer workshops during the University's spring break week, March 13-17, as per the availability of University classrooms.
