Why become a member of OLLI at LSU?

OLLI at LSU is a diverse community of adult learners engaged in courses and activities that help one to enjoy life more. OLLI at LSU inspires its members to stay intellectually and physically active through its many opportunities for lifelong learning, health and well-being, personal connection, creativity and enjoyment.


How do I learn about member activities or course changes?

We communicate to the membership through a weekly e-mail called OLLI NEWS with details of upcoming events; the semester Course Bulletin; special mailed flyers; and the OLLI at LSU website.


Can I volunteer?

Of course! We welcome participation by all members. We believe the more people are involved in shaping OLLI at LSU, the better quality our programming and services will be. Whether you like to decide what courses should be offered, who the instructor should be, serve on an advisory council or committee, help with hospitality and refreshments, answer the phone, serve as a greeter, act as a course coordinator, tech coordinator, or help in the OLLI at LSU office, you are needed.

Who are the instructors?

Instructors are LSU professors (many retired) and/or local experts in their respective fields from throughout the southern Louisiana area. Many of our members serve as instructors and course coordinators.


How do I sign up to be a Course Coordinator?

You can email the OLLI at LSU office at, or talk to a member of a chapter Curriculum Committee, your instructor, or a course coordinator and offer to become a course coordinator assistant. This is a great way to become involved.


How can I make suggestions to improve the program?

OLLI at LSU courses and events are member-advised. This means the activities, courses and procedures are primarily directed by the members. If you have ideas for improving the program, talk to the Program Manager, any Advisory Council member, or committee member. With your help, OLLI at LSU can only get better. We need your ideas!
