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!

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!

Peoria Lock & Dam -- March 19, 2012

During our tour of the Peoria Lock and Dam, we saw first-hand how the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers operates and maintains the nine-foot navigational channel on the Illinois River to ensure that inland traffic can pass through 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Todd Ernenputsch, a ranger with the Corps, was our guide as we viewed the dam and learned how it is only one of four wicket dams used for navigational purposes in the nation.
