New courses about modern art, the Civil War, architecture and the Chesapeake Bay are just some of the topics on schedule for the winter/spring session of Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Penn State York, a nonprofit organization offering learning opportunities for York County residents over age 50. Enrollment is in progress and most classes are offered at Penn State York, 1031 Edgecomb Ave., York.

OLLI courses are taught by active and retired volunteers including  educators and other experts in their field. There are no grades or tests, and a college degree is not required to enroll in any of the noncredit courses or seminars. OLLI’s courses allow members to discuss and share varied interests like books, history, music, arts, finances and local interests. These sessions provide an opportunity to meet people, pursue friendships and discuss their interests.
