Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

Interested in getting involved in OLLI beyond the classes? Consider joining (or starting) a SIG! SIGs are a chance for members to focus on one particular area of interest beyond what we’re able to offer in our classes. They are completely member-driven. Some meet on campus while others meet around town. As of now, there are 12 SIGs at OLLI:
