OLLI SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS

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

Each SIG has a unique course number, and students can sign up either by the term or annually. If you are interested in joining any of the groups listed below, please contact the OLLI office for more information: 707-826-5880

All groups meet at the Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center.

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