OLLI members are welcome to walk around the Furman University campus,  the lake, or ride bikes on campus, etc.

There are a few things to remember as you come onto campus:

  • Masks are required in all academic buildings regardless of vaccination status. Please remember this if you visit the bookstore or the Herring Center
  • No buildings on campus are open to the public except for the Barnes and Noble Bookstore in the lower level of the Trone Student Center.
  • The Herring Center is open to OLLI members.

Welcome to Winter Term 2022!

So much of the conversation lately has been on the COVID pandemic! It has certainly changed the way we think and the way that we do things in our own lives, as well as, here at OLLI@Furman. Two years ago, who knew that we’d convert a fully in-person program to 100% virtual last year? And now, we are using this pandemic experience to enhance our program and bring you courses in-person, on Zoom, and hybrid (in-person or Zoom for the same course.)

Take a moment to check out the 90 courses and 31 bonus events we are offering this winter. Forget about COVID for just a moment and find a course that gives you a break from current events. Try something new, or take comfort in an old favorite. Join a Special Interest Group or participate in Read and Explore with OLLI, a winter tradition. We hope you’ll find that learning new things helps make this trying time a little easier to bear. We cannot wait to see you and all that 2022 has in store!
