OLLI SIGs are complying with SOU's social distancing guidelines. Presently, SIGs are not meeting in person. The SIGs listed below are meeting by video conferencing or, in the case of the SciFi SIG, just offering suggestions of films to watch on your own. Click the links for more information on each of them. This page will be updated when the SOU policy for OLLI changes.

An OLLI Shared Interest Group (SIG) is a group of OLLI members who share a common interest and meet outside the normal OLLI class environment to discuss and enjoy this mutual interest. Each group is different depending on its focus, and all provide interesting lifelong learning opportunities as well as a fun social experience.

OLLI SIGs are independent and self-managed with the SIG members deciding when, where, and how often they will meet. Initially, one or more members volunteer to be facilitator(s). The facilitator is responsible for administrative and communication details.

If you would like to start a "virtual SIG," contact the SIG Coordinator, Barb Barasa, by email at barb@websitings.net or phone 541-552-9349. OLLI volunteers are available to help you with technology.
