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!

Vaughan Manufacturing & Pella Windows -- September 9, 2010
OLLI members enjoyed a beautiful fall day for our tour of Vaughan & Bushnell Manufacturing and Pella Windows in Bushnell and Macomb, Illinois.
On this tour, we learned how Vaughan & Bushnell Manufacturing has grown from a small maker of hand tools to one of the world’s largest producers of hammers, pry bars, hatchets, and more. After lunch in Macomb, we visited Pella Windows, one of the corporation’s 12 window manufacturing facilities in the United States.
For more information about our tours, visit hammernet.com and www.pella.com.
