The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Auburn University, or OLLI at Auburn, has announced that its Fall Term 2015 course catalog is available beginning Wednesday, Aug. 5. The wide variety of courses begins the week of Sept. 28 and concludes the week of Nov. 16. Most classes are held at the Clarion Inn & Suites, 1577 S. College St. in Auburn, with some special classes at the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art, the Big Dog Running Company and the home of caterer Ursula Higgins.

Two types of memberships are available for the year that runs Sept. 1 through Aug. 31. General members, who pay $25 per year, participate in OLLI activities but do not take academic courses. Academic membership – $115 for one term, $140 for two terms and $200 for three terms, plus the $25 general membership fee entitles the member to participate in OLLI courses.

Learn more about OLLI at Auburn at the Fall Term General Membership Meeting on Monday, Sept. 21. It starts at 8:45 a.m. with an information fair for OLLI’s campus and community partners. The OLLI Convocation begins at 10 a.m. with the presentation “The Real Life Drama of Harper Lee’s Go Set a Watchman: Aging, Privacy, Celebrity Culture, and Small Town America” by Wayne Flynt, professor emeritus of history at Auburn University and respected author and scholar of Southern history, politics and religion. From 11:30 a.m. until noon, there will be an orientation for new members.
