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!

Daarul Uloom Islamic School -- April 15, 2011

On April 15, OLLI toured the Daarul Uloom Islamic School in Peoria. Opened in September, 2010, the school serves approximately 125 students in grades pre-K to 6 with a focus on Islamic and secular education under the banner of a full-time, fully accredited school. The school, which outgrew its former location on Mount Hawley Road, features ten classrooms and a multi-purpose facility used for sports, youth activities, and social gatherings, as well as room to grow to serve older students in the future.

Principal Mona Rustom and Board President Mohammed Salem led our tour and gave participants an overview of the school’s mission, walked us through some of the classrooms, explained the prayer services, and discussed how the Peoria area’s Muslim community is supporting the full-time and weekend instruction.
