MSU Wonderlust Offerings

We are excited to offer a diverse line-up of topics and programs this year! Join us for one of our many two-hour, four to six week courses, monthly speaker series, hands-on tours of local businesses and performing arts groups, and seminars. Our book discussion groups, the timely Friday Forum and Community Events also offer opportunity for learning and discussion. If you are looking for in-depth extended learning, a MSU Wonderlust Montana Travel Series program may be right up your alley.

All MSU Wonderlust programs are created by members for members, and instructed by local and visiting professionals, university professors and staff. Our ‘teaching staff’ enjoy instructing our engaged, curious and enthusiastic MSU Wonderlust members.

MSU Wonderlust is guided by a volunteer Advisory Council, composed of members from throughout the greater Gallatin Valley community.

MSU Wonderlust is proud to announce it will soon become an Osher Lifelong Learning Institute! OLLI at MSU will join 123 other OLLI’s throughout the nation, offering engaging programming for members 50 years of age and better.
