OLLI at Clemson University was originally housed on campus,
with offices in Lehotsky Hall. However, the constraints of busy campus meant most courses and programs occurred in churches, libraries and even private homes.
In 2008, the University began a facility planning process with J. Michael Cheezem, a developer with local ties to the Clemson University family. As part of the new Patrick Square Town Center and in partnership with OLLI members and University officials, Mr. Cheezem presented to the University an 8,000 square foot, two story building, the Charles K. Cheezem Education Center. The Center now houses the OLLI administrative offices as well as a majority of OLLI classes, and features a large assembly
room, several classrooms, an art and science room and a demonstration kitchen.
