New Semester Kicks Off at Osher Lifelong Learning Institute

Posted: Updated:

A new semester kicked off Monday for students who are a bit older, and wiser, than the average student. A crowd of more than 80 people gathered at the Senior Center for the first day of the course, "Isn't it Romantic."

The film class is part of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) through the University of Virginia, which gives seniors a chance to continue their education. The six-week course covers films like "Love Actually" and "When Harry Met Sally."

"The OLLI program is to expand our horizons, keep our minds and our spirits in tune and live life to its fullest," said Hal Horan, a teacher at the center.

The program offers a wide range of courses, from foreign policy, to brain disease, to jazz music.
