Welcome to OLLI at Clemson University! Discover where curiosity has no age limit!
We are a membership community of nearly 1,000 individuals in the Upstate, age 50+, who come from all backgrounds and educational levels. Together we enjoy the camaraderie of our peers as we participate in a myriad of activities designed just for us. Our purpose is to create and support a stimulating, interactive lifelong learning community of seasoned adults that is member-driven and volunteer-led.
We offer three semesters of courses, excursions, outdoor adventures, cinema and special interest groups. Each year, more than 200 unique programs provide opportunities to gain knowledge and expertise in a wide variety of academic and recreational pursuits, and to share our experiences and perspectives with others. Our activities are innovative and limited only by members’ imaginations! Click here to explore our course and program catalog.
We also offer membership benefits throughout the year, including Clemson University privileges, discounts at local businesses, and member-only social events and programs – all for a low $30 annual fee. Click here to learn more about why you should join OLLI, directly from our members.
Since 2002, OLLI has been supported by interested community members as well as Clemson University’s College of Health, Education, and Human Development. OLLI is an approved Institute in the Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management. Our main office is located at Clemson’s Patrick Square, in the Charles K. Cheezem Education Center.
