The most popular educational activities retirees enjoy are through the University Southern Mississippi?s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI, www.usm.edu/olli), an association of retired persons who seek continued intellectual and social stimulation. Housed just off campus, the OLLI offers a relaxed setting for sharing learning experience with friends old and new without the pressure of exams or grades. The institute, now over 800 members, is run by the members who select courses and approve the instructors. OLLI also schedules a number of special-interest classes and trips through out the year. Their content, duration, costs and instructors depend up on the nature of each class.
