Welcome to OLLI @ Furman, where senior adults learn new skills, make new friends and realize that they never imagined retirement could be so much fun or so fulfilling! We have a lot going on at Furman for our seniors to enjoy that includes hundreds of courses to choose from throughout the year from history to literature to hobbies and exercise. We also offer bonus trips and events, special interest groups, social events and a lunch and learn series. Come join us in the place where learning never retires!​
