  • Using Social Media without Going to War with Family and Friends

    Wednesday, February 13, 2019

    One of my favorite things about living in the future is social media. I have found, rediscovered, and kept so many friends there that my life would be a much emptier place without the Internet. However, there are plenty of downsides to social media, and the primary one is that politics has become so incendiary many people have sworn off it rather than deal with all the vitriol. So how do you use social media without losing your mind?

  • Celebrating Success and Understanding Challenges (Charleston)

    Thursday, February 7, 2019

    CHARLESTON - As we look to the future, it’s time that we explore who we are and how we’re doing. Therefore, the Membership committee, chaired by Gwen Gill, and Marketing committee, chaired by Ed Johnson, have worked with me and two student assistants, Lyndsay Bonomo and Bailey Johnson, to create a list of 50 questions that we would like to ask our members. Some questions are demographic (age, gender, retirement/employment status, etc.) while others are meant to help the OLLI board and staff determine where our strengths and weaknesses lay and how we might better serve our members. Some of the questions may seem rather personal but please understand that we ask them only because it is the type of information that we may be able to use when forming new partnerships and seeking grant funds.
