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!

Central Peoria Churches -- April 26, 2011
Our second foray into local churches led us to four houses of worship in the Central Peoria area.
During this trip, we got a closer look at the beliefs, architecture, and history of St. Bernard’s Catholic Church, All Saints Greek Orthodox Church, Salem Lutheran Church, and Universalist Unitarian Church of Peoria. Representatives from each church were in attendance to talk about the practices of each congregation, and archiects from Farnsworth Group joined the group to discuss each building's design and architecture.
OLLI thanks Father John Sardis of All Saints Greek Orthodox Church for arranging an amazing lunch for our participants.
