OLLI Extras & Special Interest Groups

Our OLLI Extras & Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are a very popular benefit of membership in the OLLI at URI community. It’s a great way to socialize with people with similar interests outside of the normal OLLI class environment. OLLI members propose these groups and take care of arrangements. Most OLLI Extras & SIGs meet once a month although they may meet more or less often if members wish.

Registration is Required! OLLI Extras do not meet regularly.  Each session requires registration. These are Free and exclusively for OLLI members!
