Osher Lifelong Learning Institute


[MUSIC PLAYING] Hi. So, I’m Mike Porter, and I
am the Chair of the Outreach Committee for OSHER. OSHER’s a program
here in Columbia, where we provide
classes for those who are 50 years and over. OSHER offers classes
four different semesters during the year. And coming up on September
8 is the fall semester. Classes are once a week,
Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. The teachers for these
classes are fabulous. These are all local teachers. Many of them are
retired professors. Everything is a volunteer
basis, so they’re teaching because they want to teach. And they know how to
teach the adult learner. Our biggest problem is getting
the word out that we exist. I want people to connect
Columbia and OSHER together. And when they think of
Columbia, they think of OSHER, And they think this is the
place I want to move to. And this is an
exciting community. [MUSIC PLAYING]
