Member Only Socials   

OLLI Socials

An OLLI at UVA membership is a great way to meet new people in our community! You’ll find several ways to be involved socially with other members.  Your weekly, members-only Insider will contain the dates and times. We do request RSVPs so that we may be prepared and provide any necessary information to you.

Social opportunities, outside of the classroom, are offered twice a month. Our intention is to offer one in-person and one on-line to suit our members’ preferences. You’ll be able to choose from our virtual Noon Zooms and OLLI Exhales or our in-person Coffee Chats and Happy Hours.

Noon Zooms

            Noon Zooms are for members who prefer socializing mid-day from the comfort of their own home. Sometimes, we will have featured guest-speakers, but there is no need to mute your mic in this social. We encourage a lively, one-hour discussion among members, with your coffee, tea, or snacks in hand. Our members find that this is a great way to stay in touch when out of town, when needing to be home, or during inclement weather.

OLLI Exhales

            Scheduled for late afternoon or early evening, these virtual socials are designed to help us all unwind and recharge our energy and member connectedness. Bring your favorite drink, kick back, and join in the fun! Sometimes we will have a favorite, local guest host, and we always aim for friendly conversation and connecting.

Coffee Chats

            This semester, for the first time, we’re really excited to gather in-person for Coffee Chats. Held at JBIRD Coffee, located by our offices within Studio IX, or in other local coffee houses, OLLI provides the coffee or tea. New members will love this chance to meet other members and staff. Instructors and students will enjoy this casual time to catch up. Come as you are for an hour of relaxed, one-on-one conversation and social connection.

Happy Hours

            are really delighted to gather in late afternoon, in-person before the sun goes down on our busy day. This is where laughter happens and new friendships form. Happy Hours may be held near our Studio IX offices or at outside local venues. Members may purchase alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverages, and we’ll provide snacks. These are a great way for new members to get to know fellow students, instructors, and staff. And, it’s a fun way to stay connected!
