Interest Groups

OLLI at WVU has that meet on an ongoing basis. OLLI Interest Groups are open to all OLLI members. Please note only the first three interest groups meet over Zoom. All others are in person in Morgantown.

Campus Club Evening Book Discussion

Believing that a good book is one that encourages a good discussion, the evening group tries to read an eclectic variety of books: novels, non-fiction, biography, etc. Books are suggested by members and the group tries to have books lined up two to three months in advance. Discussion of the book is always followed by social time to encourage friendship and catch up! New members are welcome and new voices appreciated.

Tuesdays, 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM, Zoom

Twilight Trivia

Grab a beverage and some snacks, settle into a comfy chair with your laptop, tablet, or smart phone, and test your knowledge of trivia, and the trivial, against your fellow OLLI members during our monthly virtual game night! This game is open to all members, and is played over Zoom.

Tuesdays, 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM, Zoom

Campus Club Morning Book Discussion

Members of the Morning Book Discussion give input into the selection of books and create a list from the suggestions. The following criteria are used for the selection: at least one non-fiction choice, consideration of local or regional authors, stories with West Virginia ties, recommendations from members who have read a book or reviews of books, and current “buzz” about a book. New members are always welcome.

Tuesdays, 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM, Zoom

Walking Outdoors with Campus Club

The Walking Group meets at various rail trail locations in the community for a one-hour, three-mile round trip walk. Trails are generally level or have gradual elevation and the group is careful to avoid the downtown trail area due to traffic. Recognizing that some members walk faster than others, the groups may spread out in twos and threes to encourage and support each other.

Thursdays, 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM, Morgantown

Writers Interest Group

Having a hard time finding time to work on your life story, novel, poetry, journal, or letters? Come write in a quiet, comfortable, supportive environment. Bring paper, pen, laptop, etc. There will be at least 1.5 hours of quiet writing time each session.

Thursdays, 10:00 AM to 11:45 AM, Morgantown

Yarn Arts  

Join your fellow OLLI members to share ideas, patterns, and workshop information and to support each other in knitting, crocheting, needle-point, and other yarn and thread arts.

Mondays, 12:45 PM to 2:30 PM, Morgantown

Ukulele Interest Group

Join fellow ukulele enthusiasts for a new OLLI special interest group this fall! Participants will play and sing together, share songs and knowledge, and help each other learn. All are welcome, no experience or instrument ownership required.

Mondays, 5:30 PM to 7:00 PM, Morgantown

Let’s Do Lunch!

This group meets once a month to enjoy each other’s company while dining at local restaurants. Past lunch spots have included Terra Café, Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Iron Horse Tavern, The Pines, Sargasso’s, and Ali Baba’s. Suggestions of some place new are welcome.
