Class Updates and Reminders

  • The Spring OLLI catalog has a misprint for AH 103, Preservation of Historic Architecture. The class will meet on April 6 and April 13 at 1:30 PM in the Woodbridge classroom, as printed in the catalog, but those dates are Wednesdays (not Thursdays, as listed in the catalog and on student confirmations). The calendar in the back of the catalog is correct. We apologize for the error. Please contact the course facilitators, listed on page 8 of your catalog, if you have any questions.
