Fall is our favorite time of the year and we're eager to meet new members and reconnect with old friends both online and face to face! Our Fall 2021 Class Catalog features more than 80 classes in one of three learning formats so you can choose what works best for you: online learning, outdoor meetups, or in the classroom.

Not Too Late to Enroll in Classes After the Fall Break

A dozen late-starting classes are set to launch after the fall break, including a number of financial and estate planning classes, like Behavioral Finance and the Psychology of Investing, Retirement Planning & Investments, Costly Mistakes of Estate Planning, Save or Shred: Organizing & Securely Disposing of Documents, and Reverse Mortgage Myth vs. Reality. Our conversation about equity and inclusion continues on Zoom with Becoming Inclusionary, a five-week series that highlights the experiences of guest presenters on a wide-range of subjects, from Japanese-American exclusion in Washington State, improving the police and social justice systems, and becoming more inclusionary in the mental health field. Remember space is unlimited in OLLI Zoom classes. Drop in anytime and check out our online classrooms!

OLLI Volunteer Connections

Volunteers are the backbone of OLLI at CSU, Chico. They provide instruction, communications, technical support, outreach, and help us make important social connections. Without volunteer support, OLLI Chico could not provide the array of lifelong learning experiences members enjoy year-round. The Volunteer Connections Program is designed to keep OLLI programming sustainable by expanding volunteer participation. Learning more about you—your skills and interests—will help us connect you to areas of need within the organization. Email us if you'd like to Connect Today.
