Summer brings an end to regular classes for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Auburn University, or OLLI at Auburn, but that doesn't mean an end to learning opportunities.

OLLI offers a series of nine brown bag lunch and learn programs and special courses during the summer. No registration is required for the weekly summer programs and visitors are welcome.

All of the brown bag sessions will be on Tuesdays from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at the Clarion Inn and Suites, located at 1577 South College St. in Auburn. The presentations, which are open to all institute members, guests and to the general public, are held in the first floor dance floor. Bring your own lunch; coffee and water will be provided.
