OLLI in Seacoast

Exterior Detail of Building

The Seacoast makes use of two Granite State College campuses: 51 International Dr., Portsmouth NH and 35-E Industrial Way, Rochester, NH.  The Portsmouth campus primarily serves as the home for Seacoast OLLI volunteers and most classes.  When combined, nine class rooms provide the capacity for an average of 80 classes offered per year.  Field trips known as ‘Out and Abouts’ may take place on hiking and cross-country trails in and around the greater Seacoast area and at local attractions such as; the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, Strawberry Banke, Great Bay National Wildlife Refuge and the Isles of Shoals.

The Seacoast provides its membership affiliates with free, casual, social events such as ‘mug and muffin’s, lunch bunches and special interest hiking groups. Currently there are an average of 230 members living in the greater Seacoast area affiliated with the Seacoast site.

OLLI members are welcome to take classes at any of the four OLLI Sites.

Hiking/Walking

This SIG has been very popular in the past. It is currently in need of a leader or leaders. If you are interested in organizing this group, contact sandy_oneill@comcast.net. You simply pick the day of the week you wish to hike, decide how often you would like to hike, the length of the hike, and what time of day to hike. An email list of interested members can be developed or you can just advertise the dates and hikes and members are free to show up at the correct time. Hikers will need to sign waivers.
