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!

Reach for the Stars with Scott Altman -- March 10, 2013

On Sunday, March 10, hometown hero Scott Altman visited Bradley University to speak to OLLI members about growing up in Central Illinois, his experiences with the Navy, and the wonders of flying and working in space.

Scott graduated from Pekin Community High School in 1977, and his parents, Sharon and Fred Altman, still reside in Pekin. Scott is a graduate of the University of Illinois and the Naval Postgraduate School. He has received numerous honors, including the Navy’s Distinguished Flying Cross and NASA’s highest award, the Distinguished Service Medal.

A veteran of four space flights, Altman has logged over 51 days in space. In August 2012 he became Vice President for the newly formed ASRC Federal Space and Defense.

Steve Straight, a Trustee of the Peoria Historical Society, requested permission from OLLI and Astronaut Scott Altman to videotape Scott's presentation and post it on You Tube. Please click on the embedded video above and enjoy!
