The UD community and the public are invited to register for summer classes at the University of Delaware’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI).

OLLI “Summer Selections” takes place June 17-July 27 in Dover, Lewes, Ocean View, Wilmington and online, covering topics from nature and culture to history, cooking and exercise.

“Summer classes are a great way to discover why UD’s OLLI program is where friends meet to learn,” said UD OLLI director Karen Asenavage Loptes. “Our new flexible summer schedule was implemented with seasonal visitors in mind, and anyone else in the community who would like to join us for some fun activities, new topics and new friends.”
