Sneak Peek Event

The LLI held a free Sneak Peek event to preview the Fall 2021 courses on July 31st, held in the recently renovated Branch Rickey Arena on the Ohio Wesleyan campus.

Courses are taught by volunteers, including professors, practitioners and others in a non-competitive environment, with each class meeting for approximately two hours.  Fall 2021 term registration has closed.  Please check back for updates on the Spring 2022 Term.

Information on the July event and the Fall 2021 term will also be sent to everyone who has attended a past LLI class, received a previous LLI email, and/or requested to be on the LLI email list.  If you are new to the LLI, be sure to join our email list to be kept up-to-date.

We have missed seeing you and look forward to seeing you on campus this fall!
