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!

Indiana Architecture Tour -- June 19 - 21, 2012

Ranked sixth in the nation by the American Institute of Architects, Columbus, Indiana is noted for the innovative designs of more than 70 historic and modern structures, including six National Historic Landmark buildings.

OLLI and the Fine Arts Society of Peoria partnered for a three-day, two-night architectural exploration of Columbus, French Lick, West Baden, and New Harmony, Indiana. Frequent OLLI instructor, Fine Arts Society President, and retired architect Bennett Johnson accompanied our group to provide valuable insight and background throughout the trip.

Highlights of our adventure included:

-- a private, guided tour encompassing a broad cross-section of Columbus' architecture;

-- tours of the Miller House and Garden, a National Historic Landmark that expands upon Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's architectural tradition of Modernism;

-- private tours of the French Lick Springs Hotel and the West Baden Springs Hotel;

-- a private, guided tour of New Harmony, a small town along the banks of the Wabash River that was once a "utopian society" founded by German Lutheran immigrants.
