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!

George O. Pasquel Co. -- March 9, 2011

Owner Pete Pasquel was our guide as we took a private tour of the restaurant equipment and wholesale food distributor in downtown Peoria. Opened in 1946, the company sells more than 10,000 different types of restaurant equipment, such as china, crystal, glassware, silverware, paper goods, grills, coolers, and more. Our visit included a tour of the 3,000 square-foot retail showroom, product warehouse, and used inventory and equipment building. In addition, Pete shared his personal memories of his six decades with the business, and showed some of the hundreds of mementos he has collected from some of Peoria’s most famous restaurants.
