The San Diego State University Alumni Association is collaborating with SDSU’s College of Extended Studies in reaching out to potential new members for the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute program.

This Extended Studies program offers Aztec alumni and other community members who are 50 and better an opportunity to return to SDSU to enrich their lives through adult education classes.

With the assistance of the SDSU Alumni Association, the Osher program is expecting to host nearly 200 people at its open house Saturday, Jan. 12, in the SDSU Extended Studies Center.

“SDSU’s College of Extended Studies is very pleased to be working with the SDSU Alumni Association as we continue to reach out and extend the opportunities for adult learners to never stop learning,” said Joe Shapiro, Extended Studies dean.

“We welcome this opportunity in collaboration with the Alumni Association to expand the
Osher program to more Aztecs and to other community members who continue to make education a valued part of their lives.”

The courses are taught by SDSU faculty and community experts. They provide affordable education offering classes to like-minded individuals interested in intellectual growth.

There are no tests, no grades and no exams – just learning for the pure enjoyment of it.

Fascinating subjects for the spring semester include Medieval art history, implications of DNA sequencing, presidential leadership, music of the Classical and Romantic periods, memoir writing, and 20th century American history, to name a few.

Alumni Association members who sign up as new Osher members for the spring semester will receive a 25 percent discount.
