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!

Peoria Journal Star - June 26, 2013

OLLI members enjoyed an informative trip behind the scenes at the Peoria Journal Star.

Phil Jordan, Marketing Manager, met with the group and discussed how our local newspaper is in good financial shape and what a huge impact its readership actually has on the community.

Our tour guides, Rae Ann and Bernie (our very own OLLI member) let us through the print shop, explaining the printing process while showing us the computer control room, ink and paper storage and of course the 4-story press!

After the tour, the group met with Steve Tarter, Business Editor and Mike Bailey, Opinion Editor. They shared their perspectives on the news business and their specific insights on Peoria Journal Star.

OLLI thanks the staff at the Peoria Journal Star for giving us such an enjoyable and informative afternoon.
