Blog: Lifelong Learning at Horizon House: Osher Lectures

Horizon House works with many partners to enhance residents’ lives and make our home a place of intellectual stimulation. The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Washington is one of those partners. Aimed at adults over 50, Osher offers seniors a wide variety of courses, from global events, to the arts, to health science research.

Classes—there are 50 different courses to choose from each year—are held on the UW campus, but also in locations all over the Seattle metropolitan area. Luckily for us, Horizon House is one of the “classrooms.”

We’re currently enjoying the Winter Osher course, “The United States Constitution” taught by William Andersen, formerly a professor at the University of Washington Law School, and a Horizon House resident!
