Celebrating 20 Years!

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Bradley University (OLLI) is a group of more than 1,000 individuals, age 50 and over, who learn together through three distinct programs: OLLI Classes, OLLI Learning Trips, and OLLI Study Groups.

Here, members can discuss what they learned, what they enjoyed, and offer suggestions to enhance future program offerings.

Take a look at the photos we're taking, and the discussions we're having as OLLI members.

Whether we're in class, in town, or out of town ... we're on the go, having fun, and constantly learning.

We look forward to reading your comments!

While you're online, be sure to visit our website www.bradley.edu/continue/olli to register for our programs.

Don't forget -- OLLI has its own YouTube Channel, where you can see video clips of Learning Trips, Classes, and Study Groups!

Moons Over Peoria -- September 11, 2009

In its first-ever "night trip," OLLI traveled to Jubilee State Park for an evening of star-gazing with the Peoria Astronomical Society.

We celebrated the 400th anniversary of Galileo's use of the telescope by viewing the summer Milky Way from the Decker-Grebner-Van Zandt Observatory. More than a dozen members of the Astronomical Society brought their personal telescopes so we could also view Jupiter and its moons, M13, M57, and Andromeda.

We were guided by Eric Clifton of the Peoria Astronomical Society, and joined by Illinois Central College profesor Brian Bill and his students.
