OLLI Logo Welcome to The Cajun Prairie Chapter of OLLI at LSU 

Designed for energetic, curious adults 50 years and above, the mission of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at LSU is to “offer the mature adult a feast of peer-learning opportunities in a membership-based Community.” 

As a member of the Cajun Prairie Chapter of OLLI at LSU, you will become a full-fledged member of all chapters of OLLI at LSU, including the Cajun Prairie Chapter at LSU Eunice.  You will be eligible to attend our many free stimulating “coffee” presentations/discussions with fascinating guest speakers as well as nominally-priced leisure learning courses and field trips.

By the Community, For the Community

Although LSUE provides the facilities in the Classroom and Community Education Building and help facilitate the activities, the Cajun Prairie Chapter of OLLI at LSU is community-driven. Members of OLLI decide what they would like to learn and do, with volunteers organizing and implementing the coffees, classes, and field trips each semester.
