Why join? Finding meaning and purpose in life after age 50 is a major dimension of optimal aging.

Every course, trip, interest group, etc., at the Eckerd College OLLI is an experience in active thought. Instructors will challenge you to find greater meaning through learning than ever before. You will explore topics that you have probably been interested in in the past, but did not have the time to pursue. As an OLLI member you will be stimulated to find new meaning in your life’s activities through the learning experiences offered by way of classes, learning adventures in the community and around the world, through the development of new relationships with fellow OLLI members, and by serving as a program volunteer.

The opportunity for self discovery and to renew old passions is a major benefit of joining the Institute at Eckerd College. You will meet many new and interesting people who have moved to Florida from around the world and have become active members, instructors, and volunteers. Look through the catalog and you will see an abundance of opportunities to become mentally engaged on many different topics and thus find new meaning and purpose in your life.
