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!

Four Perfect Pebbles, by Marion Blumenthal Lazan -- April 9, 2013

Marion Blumenthal Lazan, Holocaust survivor and co-author of Four Perfect Pebbles, was the featured speaker at this OLLI-sponsored lecture on April 9.

Mrs. Lazan's mission is to speak to as many people as possible, so they can hear the story from a Holocaust survivor. Her presentation went beyond the facts; she applied the lessons learned to society today. She asked the audience to be tolerant of others and not stereotype individuals based on religious belief, race, color, or national origin.

She stressed the importance of positive thinking as well as creativity and inner strength when working to overcome adversity. She also urged her audience to be true to themselves and not blindly follow the leader.

OLLI thanks Mrs. Lazan for her inspiring talk in front of a packed house (more than 250 people were in attendance!). Thanks also to Steven Streight for providing the accompanying video.
