Day and Overnight Trips


The OLLI Trips Committee plans and coordinates trips of educational interest to OLLI members to locations off the CSUF campus. These trips are OLLI special events and are subject to the Special Events Registration Policy section located elsewhere in this catalog. Trips are of two types: day trips and overnight trips. Some recent or planned day trips include Hollywood Bowl, Broad/MOCA museums and JPL. Some recent or planned overnight trips include Death Valley, Sequoia and Washington, DC.
