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!

Lakeview Museum of Arts & Sciences -- February 24, 2011
The Lakeview Museum of Arts and Sciences features exhibition galleries, a planetarium, the Illinois Folk Art Gallery, a Discovery Center, and educational programming for all ages.
The heart of the museum is its permanent collection, and its legacy is how that collection inspires visitors. In this private tour with Kristan H. McKinsey, VP of Collections and Exhibitions, we found out what goes into building a museum collection and specifically what comprises the Lakeview Museum art and science collections. Kristan discussed how the Museum purchases art and explained how the Museum cares for and uses its collections. Participants also had an opportunity to see renderings of the new Peoria Riverfront Museum, which is scheduled to open in 2012.
