What we're about

This is a group for learning and meeting people with similar interests for discussion. The material is roughly college level ranging from philosophy and art history to math, physics, and computer science. Events may be based on popular online courses. MIT OCW, Udemy etc. It's like college without the tuition, grades, dull lectures, and deadlines.* We also hold online chess events and lessons. Events are held at the Orenco Learning Club bookstore or online via Zoom.
