Overview

OLLI offers classes that meet the needs and schedules of active adults. Our calendar mirrors the university's academic calendar. We divide the Fall and Spring semesters into two 5-week terms and offer one 5-week term in the Summer. Fall terms begin in September and October. The Spring terms begin in February and March. The Summer term runs during June and July. During each term we offer three different kind of learning experiences: classes, seminars, and field trips. All Hattiesburg classes and seminars are held at the Peck House or Asbury Annex (unless otherwise indicated). Gulf Park classes are held in the Fleming Education Center, unless otherwise indicated.

2 Hour (or 4 Hour) Seminars
Seminars meet just once in a five week term and are two hours in length. Occasionally we have a two-part seminar which meets a total of 4 hours.

5-Week Classes
Classes are two hours each and meet once a week, however exercise classes are one hour in length and meet twice a week. Class fees are $20. Previous topics have included:100 Years of Hattiesburg History, Investments, Conversations in African American Literature, and Introduction to Computing.

Field Trips
Field Trips are planned each year. They range in length from one day to one week. Costs vary.
