A taste of spring classes will be offered during an open house at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Rochester Institute of Technology, formerly “The Athenaeum.” New participants as well as members—ages 50 and over—are invited to attend a “variety pack” of intellectually stimulating classes during a weeklong event.

Sampler sessions will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Monday through Thursday, April 2-5. Participants are invited to stay the day—attend classes, bring a brown bag lunch and socialize with current members.

Course curriculum ranges from Contemporary Events, Eating for Health and Long Life, German for Beginners and China: Threat or Opportunity, to Second Guessing the Academy and Irving Berlin: A Retrospective.

Call ahead to reserve seating during the Open House. For more information or for a complete spring catalog, call OLLI at RIT at (585) 292-8989 or visit
