Low Cost Classes can Improve Aging Brains
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) has expanded to Humboldt State University in California, where more seniors are returning to school for both educational and recreational courses. The organization has been popular in several areas nationwide, as it highlights the importance of improving the brain throughout the aging process. Seniors can take a variety of classes including tai chi, painting, and courses on the Byzantine Empire and Constitutional myths. There are no exams or grades involved. The program hopes to encourage lifelong learning as well as increase social interaction among seniors.
