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!

Maui Jim -- March 6, 2012
On our first trip of Spring 2012, we visited the Peoria headquarters of Maui Jim, the fastest growing premium sunglass maker in the world.
During our tour, we saw first-hand how the company engineers its PolarizedPlus lenses, which combat the sun's intense glare and harmful ultraviolet rays. Chief Financial Officer Tim Krueger spent nearly two hours with our group, discussing the company's "Aloha Spirit" philosophy, its move from Hawaii to Peoria, and how its "ohana" (family) has steadily built a cult following for its products.
OLLI thanks Tim Krueger and the staff at Maui Jim for welcoming us during the tour. For more information about Maui Jim, please visit www.mauijim.com.
