OWLS School: A Month Long Learning Opportunity!

Posted on July 12, 2018 in Active Aging, In The News, Learning, OWLS School

OWLS stands for Older. Wiser. Lifelong. Scholars.

People are living longer today. Many are finding that their lives can be enriched through continuing learning experiences and expanding social contacts. OWLS is the perfect answer—a school with no exams! Registration fees are affordable and there is no long-distance travel. OWLS offers an opportunity to study current affairs, expand interests and develop friendships—all of which are enjoyable, worthwhile experiences.

The OWLS school operates the entire month of October each year at Ohio Living Westminster-Thurber.  The OWLS school has been offering top quality classes since 1995.

The OWLS Board develops curriculum based on these vital themes:

  • National and World Issues
  • Exploration and Challenging Ideas
  • Morality and Belief Systems
  • Literature
  • The Arts
  • Practical Skills
  • Special Interests

Each course of study has four 2-hour sessions for a total of eight hours per course. Instructors come from local colleges and universities, from prestigious organizations and even from out of state. They are chosen based on expertise in specified field and teaching skills.

The OWLS School Mission:

To provide intellectually enriching educational opportunities through college-level courses for age 55+ learners of Central Ohio.

Class schedules are posted in August.

Starting on August 1, go to to download this year’s class schedule, course descriptions and registration form.
