Shared Interest Groups (SIGs) are a great way for OLLI-UO members to continue lifelong learning beyond the classroom! These groups provide new opportunities to form friendships with other members around shared interests. They are independent and self-directed, with members deciding where and when to meet and how the group will function.
Have an idea for a SIG? Review SIG guidelines and complete a Proposal Form online or pick up a paper form from a program manager.
Examples of SIGs include:
Other SIG examples: astronomy is fun, day hiking, drawing for beginners, knitting, science fiction, photography, culinary adventures, genealogy, pickleball, heavy metal fans, etc.
View the list of current SIGs. Feel free to contact a facilitator to join in or for more information. Member contact information can be found in your member directory or by requesting it by phone at 800-824-2714 or by email at email@example.com.
SIGs are open to current OLLI-UO members only, i.e. those who hold a membership for the current year.
As an OLLI member, you may be interested in forming a SIG that meets for a weekly lunch, plays pickleball, shares gardening tips, enjoys nature walks or foreign movies.
Opportunities are endless, but keep these guidelines in mind:
