OLLI SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS

One of the benefits of being an OLLI member is the opportunity to participate in Special Interest Groups. These Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are comprised of OLLI members who share interests and want to meet together on a regular basis. Each of the OLLI SIGs grew out of an OLLI course offering.

Single semester or annual registration is available for each SIG. Select the appropriate online registration link below the SIG of your choice.

If you would like to start your own SIG, call OLLI at 826-5880.
