The usual membership fee of $40 is being waived until July 1 because Ascension is a charter chapter. Go to www.outreach.lsu.edu/olli and you can register online, by mail, phone, or in person. If you register online, just type in CHARTER before checking out.
Membership entitles you to register for as many OLLI courses as you’d like to take. Most cost from $10 to $40. A few courses have additional fees to cover books or other supplies. An OLLI member may attend courses, coffees, field trips, nature walks, or other activities offered by any of the chapters within OLLI at LSU.
