Lifelong Learning Virtual Classes Impact Lives

Oasis participant, Linda from Santa Monica, CA shares her love of taking virtual classes through Oasis Everywhere

We often receive unsolicited emails from Oasis participants sharing their gratitude for and enjoyment of Oasis classes. This one in particular from Linda really stood out and we felt compelled to share her note. Linda’s sentiment speaks to the heart of Oasis’ mission which has been running strong for 40 years now! Thank you to Linda for her kind note. We’re so happy to hear how Oasis’ lifelong learning classes impact your life!

Oasis Everywhere has made a difference in my life because I’ve discovered many interesting topics from very knowledgeable instructors! My favorite instructor gave a course by the name of “Einstein and the Nazis.” He was fascinating! In some cases, I decide to get a book from the library to read more on topics discussed in classes I’ve taken from Oasis! I feel extremely privileged to take advantage of such interesting classes – and from the convenience of my own home! In my adult life, I’ve discovered I love history, and have therefore taken courses on our founding fathers, Thomas Jefferson and George Washington. I look forward to more upcoming, historically based classes, on Harry Truman, Dwight Eisenhauer, Critical Thinking, Black History, and The Dark Magic of Clause, (based on the original 1787 Constitution that wove slaveholder power into our branches of government). I also find instructionally based classes such as the Oasis Connections class, Google Photos very helpful. I’m intrigued by stories such as “Two True Tales of Evil: The real Dracula and Countess Bathory.” What fun stuff! In my local area of Santa Monica, CA, I take an exercise class and a cooking class, which has been a lot of fun! As you see, there’s a wide array of topics from which to choose, that are sure to pique your interest!  Don’t wait!

All best,


Santa Monica, CA
