Lifelong Learning catalogs for fall classes now available

July 30, 2009

The fall catalog for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Coastal Carolina University is now available throughout the Grand Strand.

OLLI offers area residents a wide variety of noncredit courses. More than 250 classes and workshops are planned for the fall term beginning Sept. 14 at three outreach centers: Conway (Foundation Center at U.S. 501 and Winyah Road), Myrtle Beach (Myrtle Beach Education Center at 79th Avenue North and U.S. 17 Bypass) and Litchfield (Waccamaw Higher Education Center on Willbrook Boulevard).

The schedule includes courses in art and photography, computer technology, foreign languages, history and government, literature and writing, music, theater and film, personal growth and skills, religion and philosophy, science and history, as well as nature excursions.

During Free Week, Sept. 8 to 10, current and prospective Lifelong Learners will be treated to dozens of free lectures and demonstrations of upcoming courses and clubs. There will also be an opportunity to meet members of the faculty and staff, learn about accessing OLLI's Web site and online WebAdvisor and get assistance with registering for OLLI membership, classes and parking permits.

The entire catalog is posted at, as is the weekly newsletter, which informs Lifelong Learners about upcoming courses, workshops and community events. For more information or to receive a catalog by mail, call 843-349-4001 or 843-349-4030.
