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!

A. Lucas and Sons Steel -- March 5, 2013

On our first 2013 Spring trip, we enjoyed an incredible morning at A. Lucas & Sons Steel in downtown Peoria.

During our visit, company president Margaret A. Hanley and her colleagues helped us learn about the company's long history of strong employee relationships that have helped it withstand economic downturns.

We also had the opportunity to see the fabrication process, including a welding station, bending station, burning station, voortman line, and a history station.

Several volunteers took advantage of the opportunity to weld for themselves, too!

OLLI thanks Margaret and her staff for taking time out of their busy days to welcome us to the facility. We also truly appreciate the custom-made Bradley bookends and steel beams emblazoned with our college name!
