Why Attend SUUFI 2021…?

Personal growth from compelling program elements. Dr. Dudley Tower, founder of Dynamic Aging Institute and central figure in Furman University's OLLI programs is set to join Dr. Rita Brodnax as co-presenters for 2021 SUUFI.

Enjoy the Autumn cool and color at 4200’ above sea level.

Fantastic (40 mile) vista of mountains and National Forests.

Hiking and excursions.

Really good food—vegan, vegetarian, and traditional.

Renewed relationships and community.

No traffic, a break from “e-obsession”, no hassle.

Feeling of “soaring”—you're at peace, at “home”!

Multiple opportunities to learn, experience, grow and relax via theme talks, workshops, hikes, social time, alone time, and entertainment for 6 days and 5 nights at 4200’ elevation in Autumn color and coolness in a temperate rainforest at 4200’ elevation.
