Beyond Course Offerings

Besides regular courses that meet over a college semester, OLLI also offers its members other options.

Friday Forum
Friday Forums are presentations by non-OLLI faculty on a wide range of topics. They are held most Fridays, from 10:30 to 11:30 AM. Hospitality is provided and begins at 10:00 AM. The Friday Forums are free and open to the public. Friday Forum Schedule


Summer Cafes
Summer Cafes are presentations by OLLI members who may or may not teach classes, but who want to offer a one-time presentation or a one-time discussion group on a topic of interest.


OLLI Library
The OLLI Library is in Room 523 and shares space with one of our lunchrooms. You can check out your book, take it to a table and think you are in the cafe at Barnes and Noble. Our collection has recent fiction and nonfiction, biographies and mysteries. We also have books on politics and history. In addition, you may borrow audio books, CDs and DVDs, all for one three-week period at a time. Hours are Monday through Friday, 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM.


OLLI Lunchroom
OLLI Lunchrooms are in Rooms 523 and 518. They are open between 11:30 AM and 1:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Members use this time to socialize together, continue conversations stimulated by the morning class, or just relax and read a book. There are snack, soda, and coffee and tea vending machines on the 5th floor of our building, and Express Cafe (which offers a wide range of food options) is twenty steps from the entrance of our building. We are also surrounded by countless restaurants within walking distance.
