The Open University (OU) is the best bargain when it comes to lifelong learning in Richmond. There are three, 8-week sessions each year, in the fall, winter and spring. When you become a member (only $25 for the entire year), you pay just $45 per 8-week session and you can attend any and all of the classes that we offer at either location for that one price. We do not register for individual courses, but for the entire 8 weeks. You can even sign up the first day of the session at either location. You’ll find offerings in history, literature, political science, arts, foreign languages and so much more. Our instructors are both retired and active professors from area universities, along with business professionals, world travelers and local celebrities. Best of all, there are no tests to take or papers to write! Those who are 50 years of age or older usually attend classes.
