Class Updates and Reminders

  • We are expecting a very full class for Masters of 20th Century American Drama (AH 106) beginning at 1:30 PM on Monday, Oct. 24, in the Woodbridge Onken Classroom. If you are enrolled in the class, please come early to ensure your space. At five minutes before the class begins, we will release empty seats to those waiting. If you are no longer planning to attend the course, please contact one of the facilitators, listed on page 9 of your catalog. An outline of the first class meeting is posted in the Arts & Humanities category of this blog.

 

  • There is room in the Russian Film Class (AH 103) on Friday Oct. 28, 10-1 at the University Club. This is the last film in the series.  For details, see page 8 in the catalog.

 

  • You are invited to attend a two-part class, co-sponsored by OLLI and OASIS, Health Care Reform: Is it Constitutional? Fact, fiction, and Medicare (SS 303) on Wednesdays, Oct. 19 (today) and Oct. 26, 1:30 – 3 PM, at OASIS Event Center, 800 Marguerite Ave., Corona del Mar.  This may a good opportunity to bring friends who might be interested in hearing about this vital topic–and what happens in OLLI classes. Fran Solmor is speaking on Oct. 19 about the constitutionality of the law and Jackie Lauder, will talk about the potential impact on Medicare on Oct. 26.   It’s fully described on p. 21 of the Fall OLLI catalog.  No reservations needed; come to one or both sessions.  The best parking is on the west side of Marguerite at 5th St., across the street from OASIS.

  • Last chance! A UCI graduate student in political science has asked our members to participate in an online survey that examines the causes of political participation. The goal of the survey is to determine factors that encourage or deter people from participating in political activity.  The anonymous survey should take less than ten minutes to complete and has approval from UCI’s Office of Research. If you are interested, please go to http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/671808/OLLI to take the survey. Thank you in advance for your time and assistance in this worthwhile project to advance the research on political activity, and thank you to those members who have already participated. If you have questions about the survey, the Study Information Sheet is available in the OLLI office.
