OLLI in Concord

Close up of Granite State College in Concord, NH

The Concord campus of Granite State College, 25 Hall St. Concord NH, serves as the home for Concord OLLI volunteers and most classes. Six classrooms, a large Event Center and an active, effective volunteer Curriculum Committee provide the capacity for more than 100 courses per year.  Field trips known as “Out and Abouts” may take place at attractions in and around the capital city such as the Hopkinton Historical Society, the Veterans’ Cemetery in Boscawen, and the Federal Court House in Concord.

Besides courses, Concord offers its members free, casual social events such as Mug ‘n’ Muffins, Game Days, Book Club, and Lunch Bunch outings.  Currently some 350 members living in Concord and the surrounding towns are affiliated with the Concord site.

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