This summer, from July 19 through August 27 2021, OLLI at BCC offers a variety of courses online using Zoom and in-person (where noted).  No tests, no grades, just learning for the joy of learning! Click on the course names below for individual course descriptions. All courses are 6 sessions unless noted otherwise.

Our class sessions that are held over Zoom are recorded so if you miss one, or your schedule doesn't work for a particular course, you can request recordings and watch the class sessions on your own time.

To register for Summer Two online classes, click here or call the OLLI office at 413.236.2190. We look forward to seeing you online! (Note: you need to be an OLLI at BCC member to register for courses. Membership information can be found here.)
