Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

OLLI SIGs are a great way to make new friends and socialize with people who share similar interests. You do not need to register for interest groups, and there is no fee; however, you must be an OLLI Member to participate.


We currently have the following Special Interest Groups, but if you are interested in starting a SIG don't hesitate to contact an OLLI staff member and get it started!
