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.

Festival of Lights (FOLEPI) -- November 18, 2010
On our last trip of the Fall season (and one week before the world-famous East Peoria Festival of Lights parade), OLLI had a rare opportunity to visit the "Folepi Construction Company" and its "employees:" a merry band of volunteers who design and build the parade's 40+ floats. During our tour of the building, constructed in 1994 to house activities for the already-burgeoning festival, we met a group of dedicated volunteers and employees who work year-round designing, welding, and maintaining the floats (and their 500,000 lights).
For more information about the Festival of Lights, please visit the City of East Peoria webpage.
