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!

Festival of Lights -- November 22, 2011
Just days before the East Peoria Festival of Lights parade, OLLI had the chance to see the “Folepi Construction Company” and some of its “employees:” a merry band of volunteers who design and build the floats.
We met volunteers who work year-round designing, welding, and maintaining the floats (and their 500,000 lights) and learned how the floats evolve from concept to actuality. OLLI thanks Rick Swan of the Chamber of Commerce and Ralph Dalton, volunteer, for hosting our gang!
