UTEP Registration Opens for Summer Adult Education Classes


UTEP is opening registration for adult summer classes on May 5. The OLLI classes, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, are open to anyone ages 50 and older.

This summer, 17 classes will be offered in the categories of Arts and Hands-on; Body, Mind and Spirit; Current Events; Languages; Literature; and Music.

A lifetime membership to OLLI is $25. Enrollment is $30 for unlimited courses during the six-week semester and includes a parking permit. Some individual courses have an additional enrollment fee. No prior academic credentials are required. No exams will be administered, no papers will be assigned, grades given, nor diplomas and certificates issued.

The course offerings include “Gizmos and Gadgets II,” where participants will strengthen their knowledge of how to use the devices they already own, in addition to studying various desktop applications and learning about web browsers, surfing the net, Microsoft Word and Powerpoint, creating and using multimedia applications, and connecting to mobile devices.

Other courses include Tai Chi, Dance, Yoga, Sculpture, Short American Fiction, and Meditation.

“Short American Fiction” includes discussion of works by favorite authors like Raymond Carver and Flannery O’Connor and newer ones like Andre Dubus and Ambrose Bierce.

“The Process of Aging” will focus on aging and its implications in the face of misinformation and prejudice about the late adulthood stage of life.

The course offerings also include two film classes, one on documentaries – “Films with a Mind of Their Own” – and the other on classic movies, “OLLI Movies.”

For registration, please call 915-747-6280 or 915-747-8848 or use the OLLI website here.

In person: Visit Miners Hall, Suite 209. Park for free at the Sun Bowl Garage Visitor’s Area by bringing in the parking stub for validation.
