"I often think about how interwoven OLLI has become in my life. Many of my core friends were developed through OLLI. The structure of my retirement days light up with enjoyable and worthwhile learning opportunities, as well as mingling with other life-long learners."
We're conveniently located!
With most classes centrally located in downtown San Francisco at the Westfield Centre, as well as SF State’s main campus, OLLI is both convenient and accessible for our members.
