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!

2013 Happy OLLIdays Spelling Bee!
Posted by Picasa
The third annual Happy OLLIdays Spelling Bee was held at Kickapoo Creek Winery. As OLLI members arrived they were greeted with Bloody Marys and Mimosas, and then enjoyed a delicious breakfast buffet. After breakfast we had 17 members sign up for the spelling bee.

The competition was tough as it took many rounds to whittle down the group to our final champions.

Our spelling bee winners for this year were:

1st Place - Pat Landes

2nd Place - Richard Barthel

3rd Place - Susie Smith

OLLI thanks the staff at Kickapoo Creek Winery for the wonderful food, and big thanks to all the members who came out to cheer on our spellers.
