You’ve registered for your classes, and now are ready for your first day at OLLI. Here’s some helpful information and what you’ll need to know on your first day.
1. Stop by the Information Table — On Fridays, you will find the OLLI Information Table in the lobby, near the front doors. Stop by the table to ask questions and get notices of upcoming events, lectures, and trips. A class schedule is also available with classroom locations for each class. Unsure about anything? Membership Committee members at the Information Table and OLLI Staff in the office will be happy to answer any questions.
2. Elevators — Inside the campus building, there are two elevators to the second and third-floor classrooms, located around the corner from the Information Table to the left of the staircase. Garage elevators do not connect to the classroom building floors. The elevator leading to the parking garage is connected ONLY to the parking garage. It is located at the end of the first-floor atrium area.
3. Schedule —Most classes are held on Fridays at the UConn Waterbury campus, meet for either 5, 8, or 10 weeks, and meet for 1.5 hours on the following schedule: 8:30 am – 10:00 am, 10:15 am – 11:45 am, 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm, 1:45 pm – 3:15 pm.
4. OLLI Café — At 12:00 pm, OLLI Café, our “lunch and learn” program, is held in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR, #113) at the end of the first-floor corridor, past the library. Coffee and tea are offered here each Friday. Members may bring their lunch. There is a different speaker at OLLI Café every week (see OLLI website, course catalog, and weekly newsletter for descriptions). Be sure to register for OLLI Café prior to the start of each session if you plan on attending one or more of these lunchtime gatherings.
Unsure about anything? Membership Committee members at the Information Table and OLLI Staff in the office will be happy to answer any questions.
Now that you have gathered information and know where your classes are, you are ready to go. Welcome to OLLI at UConn Waterbury!
