The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Georgia is dedicated to meeting the intellectual, social and cultural needs of mature adults through lifelong learning.

Based on the UGA campus in Athens, Georgia, OLLI@UGA began in 1994 as Learning in Retirement (LIR). Our courses have no prerequisites, no exams, no grades – all you need is a love of learning, the desire to keep your mind active, and an interest in making new friends.

During a typical year, you'll find courses on art, computers, opera, great books, health, science, politics, olive oil, Tai Chi and much more. In addition to courses, OLLI@UGA offers luncheon programs, travel/study opportunities, 26 special interest groups and an array of social activities.
