  2. Not clear on this organization: membership and/or tastings open only to SSU students? Or only to those in age range 21-33? Hell, I’m 67! If only open to SSU students, does “membership” in LLI count, or simply taking an extension course (Open University)?? Kindly clarify, sounds like a great group. Thanks.

    • Eric,

      Thanks for your message and interest. Currently this is for SSU Students, including extension course. Hope this helps. LIz
