OLLI Students: Arrive Early for Your Parking Convenience

We encourage our OLLI students to arrive early for their parking convenience, and to remember to have their OLLI parking decals displayed on their vehicles.

OLLI parking decals are a special benefit limited to OLLI members for participating in OLLI on-campus activities only.

OLLI and UAH Community events available to you include:

UAH Hockey and Sports Pass

UAH Theatre presents I and You

2/15 - 2/18, 2/22 - 2/25 at 7:30 pm | 2/29 and 2/26 at 2:30 pm | Morton Hall Studio 106 Black Box Theater

One afternoon, Anthony arrives unexpectedly at classmate Caroline's door bearing a beat-up copy of Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass, an urgent assignment from their English teacher. Homebound due to illness, Caroline hasn't been to school in months, but she is as quick and sardonic as Anthony is athletic, sensitive, and popular. As these two let down their guards and share their secrets, this seemingly mundane poetry project unlocks a much deeper mystery that has brought them together. I and You is an ode to youth, life, love, and the strange beauty of human connectedness.

Directed by Amy Guerin. Play by Lauren Gunderson.
