Dear Oasis Friends,
Firstly, thank you all for being vital to our vibrant community. I appreciate every one of you.
Whether your interest is history, the arts, science, or hands-on learning, the Oasis program team has curated an amazing collection of programs and experiences for the coming term. As you turn through the pages of the catalog our goal is for everyone to have a “this class sounds like it’s just for me!” moment. Check out our new class series like, “What If? A Journey into Counterfactual History”—four captivating classes led by our expert instructors that each ponder “what if?” for different events in American history like the outcome of the Revolutionary War or the fates of Washington, Polk, and Lincoln. It’s a discussion group on philosophy, science, religion, history, and politics all in one! And Contemporary Issues Series with Senator Jill Schupp for some of the region’s most fascinating and knowledgeable experts in an open forum to discuss provocative issues that will expand your understanding of contemporary society. Get your body moving while having fun and learning new skills like line or ballroom dancing. Look for new class categories like “Make Art (and Music!) Not War” with interactive courses to take with a friend or meet new people.
Oasis programs are intended to create connections through shared learning and experiences. I love hearing stories about friendships formed and nurtured through our community, and there are many! We want the time you share and invest with Oasis to be fun, informative, thought provoking, connection-creating, and to build a better future for you and the Oasis community.
