OLLI Special Interest Groups (SIGs)
You'll want to join one or more SIG to enrich your social, intellectual, and creative circle of friends.
What is a Special Interest Group?
A SIG is a self-organized discussion or activity group, proposed by members and coordinated by participants.SIGs are an excellent way to connect with OLLI members who share your similar interests. Past interest groups have included Lunch at the Adobe, Dining out, Current Events Discussion Group, and Hiking.
SIGs promote community among our members and provide continuity over the summer break in our class schedule.
Start a New Special Interest Group
OLLI members have expressed an interest in starting SIGs in the following (areas):Travel, Photography, Hiking, Dining out, Genealogy, Movie-going, Exploring the Bay Area, Brown Bag Current Events Discussion, Cosmology, Making Music, Biking, and Stamp Collecting.

When 6 or more people have expressed an interest in the same topic, the SIG coordinator will put you in touch with one another. Once a SIG has formed we will post an announcement on the program's Home Page with the name and contact information of the Group's facilitator.
