"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."

Al Crowell, OLLI member since 2009

Make a Gift

We're conveniently located!

When we can meet in person again, OLLI is convenient and accessible. Most classes take place at our classrooms within the centrally-located San Francisco Westfield Centre. While some classes and lectures are held at SF State’s main campus on Holloway Avenue.
