Registration is open for CCU’s lifelong learners

Registration is under way for the winter/spring term of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI), Coastal Carolina University’s premier noncredit program for adult education opportunities. The course schedule is available online at coastal.edu/olli. Classes will be held at the outreach centers in Conway at the Coastal Science Center (301 Allied Drive), at the Myrtle Beach Education Center (900 79th Ave. N.) and in the new Litchfield Education Center (Litchfield Landing, 14427 Ocean Highway).

Registration is now open for more than 350 noncredit classes and workshops offered for seasoned learners between Jan. 13 and May 30, as well as a variety of special interest clubs and travel opportunities. Topics include computer technology, art and photography, foreign languages, history and government, literature and writing, music, theater and film, personal growth and skill development, philosophy and religion, science and nature.

Participation requires OLLI membership, which is $20 for the winter/spring semester and includes discounts and special programs at area museums (Brookgreen Gardens, Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum, Georgetown County Museum, Hobcaw Barony), musical and theatrical companies (Long Bay Symphony, Atlantic Stage, Theatre of the Republic and Murrells Inlet Community Theatre), and health and wellness centers (YMCA, Fitness Edge, HealthPoint and Furever Young).
