SDSU’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute offers a vibrant learning community and state-of-the-art classrooms, where students learn from outstanding faculty from SDSU and other universities, as well as from award-winning authors and artists. There are no tests, grades or exams – just a chance to dive into learning and recapture the thrill of intellectual growth and the camaraderie created by exciting discussions with curious fellow learners.
