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!

Illinois State Museum -- November 17, 2011
Dr. Michael Wiant, Director of Dickson Mounds Museum and frequent OLLI instructor, was our host as we visited two Springfield sites dedicated to historical preservation: the Illinois State Museum and the Illinois State Research and Collections Center.
Dr. Wiant and Dr. Bonnie Styles, Director of the Illinois State Museum, provided a glimpse of the state’s collections, which ranges from hundreds of dragonflies to a dozen mastodons, with archaeology, geology, and decorative arts in between.
OLLI thanks Drs. Wiant and Styles for an amazing day of learning and adventure! For more information about the museum, please visit www.museum.state.il.us.
