The Ohio State University at Lima

Lifelong Learning Institute, LLI

Due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, for the spring session 2021, the Lifelong Learning Institute at The Ohio State University at Lima will offer "COVID-19 and older adults," a special, two-time Zoom session about the effects of the pandemic over the past year, with a particular focus on older adults.

Moderator Samantha Haudenschield, PsyD, is a licensed psychologist, coordinator of Lima Counseling and Consultation Services, and a senior lecturer in the Department of Psychology. LLI participants will discuss possible social, physical, emotional, and cognitive consequences – both positive and negative – to living through this pandemic together and then venture into discussion about what comes next and how we move forward after this experience.

The spring session 2021 is virtual. Do not come to campus for these sessions. There is no cost for these sessions and no registration is required.

For questions or further information, please call Dr. Britt Collier-Gibson, director of continuing education, at 567-242-7143 or email at

About the Lifelong Learning Institute

The Lifelong Learning Institute at Ohio State Lima began in 1991. A Road Scholar® program, LLI traditionally offers classes for seniors on four Tuesdays and Thursdays in April and October.

LLI volunteers, in coordination with Ohio State Lima, run our local program. Ohio State Lima provides administrative support, classroom space, audio/visual equipment, and technical support. Volunteer officers and committee members, course participants, and many moderators come from west central Ohio counties surrounding Allen County.

Courses on six subjects are offered each session. Individual classes last one and one half hours and meet at the same time each week. You may sign up for as many or as few classes as you wish. Classes are typically held in the Public Service Building, Rooms 212/213 on the campus of Ohio State Lima.
