OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute) at Granite State College is a member-driven, volunteer -based membership organization offering an open invitation to adults age 50 and better to enjoy life-long learning, social events and volunteer opportunities in accessible and safe locations. Come for the classes, stay for the friends!
OLLI’s Annual Spring Appeal will take place in mid-April by email as always... but this spring there is an added incentive to give. Through the generosity of OLLI member Martha Hammond, OLLI has been given the opportunity to treat our member donors to a private screening of A Beautiful Equation, 2015 Best International Film winner of the Sunrise Film Festival A Beautiful Equation Trailer If you are among the first 150 OLLI members who give $20 or more to OLLI in response to the Spring Appeal, you will be included in this special OLLI-Member-Only showing of this movie at the highly acclaimed Red River Theatre in Concord.
OLLI provides its members with free, casual social events such as mug and muffins, game days and special interest groups (SIGs) like hiking clubs, book clubs and bridge clubs. Social events are a fun way to spend time with OLLI friends or meet new OLLI friends, and more often than not they include refreshments! To learn about events that may be happening and SIGs in your area, explore all four OLLI sites: https://olli.granite.edu/learning-sites or read more in OLLI Outlook newsletters: https://olli.granite.edu/about-us
Learning for the love of it – that is our goal. OLLI presents opportunities to seek knowledge, share experiences, ask questions, exchange ideas, stay current and explore new insights with no tests, no grades and no prerequisites.
OLLI extends an open invitation to individuals 50+ years of age. Join OLLI – open the door to an exciting and rewarding world of learning and meeting new people. Come for the classes; stay for the friends!
Your Support Matters! ...Today and in the Future!
OLLI at GSC is primarily supported by membership dues, class fees, annual interest income from an endowment from the Bernard Osher Foundation and in-kind contributions from Granite State College (including classroom and office space, administrative, financial, technical and marketing support). Although our organization is fiscally healthy today, adequate reserves are critical to organizational sustainability. Contributions from members, corporate sponsors and the community, regardless of size, are significant and appreciated.
