About us
     U3A Sunshine Coast was the first U3A to be formed in Queensland and has grown now to a membership of over 2000 members. We run 160 classes and activities in locations stretching from Caloundra to Coolum and west to Maleny and Beerwah. There are 22 language classes, 17 book groups, 31 sports and physical activity classes, 13 Writing classes as well as a range of academic and recreational classes.
     Our close association with the University of Sunshine Coast has offered two way benefits - our office and one lecture room are located on campus and we provide volunteers for some teaching programs and at the on-campus Art Gallery. As well we provide annual bursaries for students.
     Our AGM is held in April each year and we conduct an Information Day in January and an Annual Trivia afternoon mid-year. Keep your eyes peeled for our Writing Competition which is held each year and has entries from all over Australia and New Zealand. ( Note Writing Competition has bee n postponed until 2014)
