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.

Murray Center for the Arts -- March 11
Read a local news link related to this trip.
Lori Luthy, creative director for Bradley’s Undergraduate Admissions Office (and freelance artist), was our personal guide as we toured the Murray Center for the Arts.
The 76-year-old industrial building in downtown Peoria houses the largest group of working artists in the area. During our visit, Lori introduced OLLI to a handful of the 25 local artists who rent studios in the facility, including herself, Ken Tiessen, Jim Jenkins, and Tyler Brandon.
OLLI thanks Lori and each of the artists for talking about their work, how they got started as artists, and for demonstrating their talent while we observed.
