LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Texas Tech University is offering a unique educational program for community members 50-years-old and older. 

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is designed for adults who are still working, semi-retired or fully retired.

The program offers numerous courses and events taught primarily by current or retired TTU faculty and local professionals during the afternoon or evening hours. 

There are no test, no grades and no papers.

The program focuses on providing the opportunity for adults to explore exciting topics and pursue interests. 

During the fall and spring semesters, they offer non-credit and short term session classes designed for adults.

Cost for members is $35 and open to anyone in the community. You do not have to be a former Texas Tech student to be involved.

OLLI is kicking off the fall semester on August 25 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. with a dinner at the McKenzie Merket Alumni Center.

Cost for this event is $18.

At this kickoff, members and prospective members can hear short commercials of several of the courses that will be offered this semester.
