    Spring Open House!

    Join us Thursday, March 12, from 10am to 11:30am for our free, fun Spring Open House and learn more about OLLI and our exciting spring semester of classes.

    Free and open to all. Enjoy delicious refreshments, meet our extraordinary instructors, and enjoy Berkshire Community College's beautiful new Connector Lounge, marked C on the BCC campus map found here. We recommend parking in the North Lot for an easy walk.

    PARKING & DIRECTIONS

    You may park in any open public parking space or in the Visitors Lot, which is on your right as you first enter the BCC campus.  

    From the Central Lot, it’s easiest to proceed up the concrete stairs, towards the Koussevitzky Performing Arts Center sign, then pass under the concrete awning.  Keep to your left and proceed down the brick path along the building, past the entrance to the Boland Theater.  You may either go up the exterior stairs on your left, or enter the doors leading toward the OLLI offices and take the elevator up to 2R and follow the bridge.  Enter the Connector through the center set of doors, with the blue wall—take the stairs or elevator up one flight.

    From the North Lot, proceed down the walking path past Melville Hall, keeping right at the fork by the tree.   Take a right at the top of the exterior stairs and enter the Connector through the center set of doors, with the blue wall—take the stairs or elevator up one flight.  You may also enter Melville through any door and follow the signs that read “To Hawthorne via Connector.”

    From Visitor Parking, the easiest route is to cross the courtyard diagonally towards the Field building.  From there, pass under the Robert Louis Stevenson quote and either take the concrete stairs ahead and to your left, or enter the doors leading toward the OLLI offices, take the elevator up to 2R and follow the bridge.  Enter the Connector through the center set of doors, with the blue wall—take the stairs or elevator up one flight.

    There are handicapped parking spaces behind Melville Hall.  Enter through the side door—the elevator is ahead and to your right.  Take that down to 3— take your first left, then your first right.  You may also use the handicapped spaces near Visitor Parking.  Enter the cafeteria and follow signs for the elevator—press 2.  Proceed through the offices, following the signs for the elevator—press 2R, which will open the rear doors.  Proceed across the bridge, then enter the Connector through the center set of doors, with the blue wall—the elevator will be to your left.

    We look forward to welcoming you to our spring open house!

    The Right to Vote: The Fight for Women’s Suffrage 1848-1920

    Save the Date! Mark your calendars for Monday, April 6th for an OLLI University Day marking the centennial of the 19th Amendment.

    Join OLLI and our guest speakers from across the Berkshires and beyond as we explore the seventy+ year history of women's voting rights, especially the role of Massachusetts in the suffrage and anti-suffrage movements and the changing alliances across class, religion, ethnicity and race.  You'll also take in the world premiere of an original theatrical work on the 1873 trial of Susan B. Anthony.  Over lunch guest speakers, local college and high school students, and OLLI members will discuss this complex history. All of this, plus breakout panels, continental breakfast and a curated exhibition of local history in collaboration with the Berkshire Historical Society.

    Keep an eye on this space for the complete list of panelists, speakers and registration options.
