Shared Interest Groups (SIGS)

SHARED INTEREST GROUPS (SIGs)

A Shared Interest Group (SIG) brings together members who focus on a certain area of interest and enjoy social interaction. You must be an OLLI Gold Member to participate in a SIG. Each SIG is led by a group member known as the Facilitator. Joining a SIG is a great way to make new friends and socialize with people who have interests similar to your own. Once you have a Gold Membership, there is no fee to join a SIG.

HOW DO I JOIN A SIG?

  • Choose your SIG from our website – olliatringlingcollege.org; select “Shared Interest Groups” from the column on the right.
  • Become a Gold Member – olliatringlingcollege.org/join
