The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, known as OLLI, at the University of Cincinnati, is a popular educational program that adds much spice to life. It is geared to mature adults (age 50+) and its classes are held at several convenient locations around  Greater Cincinnati, all with free parking. The quarterly catalog for OLLI spells out the course offerings, from 8-week seminars to one-time lectures.  Topics numbering in the 100s, year-to-year, vary widely; from traditional subjects (art, literature, music, or philosophy) to the practical (how to use your I-pad, decluttering or elder law). Best of all, OLLI brings interesting people together in a stress-free environment, at an affordable cost - with no tests, no grades, and in almost all cases, no homework.

The Sweet Rewards of Organized Space

Presented by Tina Kehl and Susan Ludwig

Carolyn Laemmle 0 8969 Article rating: No rating

An organized, clean space provides a great sense of internal pride and a sense of control that is gratifying. Most of us have that space or room we just aren’t happy with, and we can’t wrap our minds around how to approach it… so we just keep the door shut. If you are finally fed up and want to fix it, where do you start?  Just in time for spring cleaning, this presentation will include ideas for downsizing and minimizing your estate while helping you to determine which of the many philosophies and systems available is right for you.
