In addition to non-credit courses, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Western Michigan University also organizes a number of trips every year. From daylong excursions around Kalamazoo and southwest Michigan to overnight trips around the Midwest (or further), we are pleased to offer a variety of day and extended trips to our community of lifelong learners.
