In early June, OLLI members invited their grandkids to take a first-ever “Grand” tour of Bradley University.
On our private, behind-the-scenes look, some of the grandkids got to play news anchor at Hench Studios and play actors and actresses when we went “on stage” at the Hartman Center for the Performing Arts.
Later, when we checked out the Markin Family Recreation Center, we were given a private dance lesson in the studio -- hip hop no less!
Going underground in the Renaissance Coliseum to see where the athletes hang out and get rehab was cool, especially when we tried out the big lounge chairs in the Men’s Basketball film room.
At the end of the tour, OLLI members and their grandchildren enjoyed a wonderful catered lunch in the Coliseum and felt like VIPs with a view of the performance court. The grandkids even scored some cool BU gear!
OLLI sends a big THANKS to the Bradley Admissions team for such a special tour of our favorite place, Bradley University!
