Where are OLLI classes?
Most OLLI classes meet on the campus of California State University Channel Islands (CI) located south of Camarillo at the base of the Santa Monica Mountains. While CSU Channel Islands is our main program site, we host classes at locations across Ventura County with new sites being launched this year at the Agoura Hills Recreation and Event Center and the Ventura Avenue Adult Center.
