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!

Peoria Zoo - April 14, 2014

Julie Brunton, Peoria Zoo Assistant Curator of Education, was OLLI's behind the scenes tour guide on Monday, April 14, 2014. Brunton discussed Peoria Zoo's affiliation with the Association of Zoos & Aquariums. Through the Zoo's affiliation, the Peoria Zoo works with over 200 other zoos affiliated with the organization to acquire a variety of animals.

Throughout the tour OLLI members were able to learn about the different animal habitats. Brunton also explained what it takes to feed and care for some of the animals on a daily basis. The OLLI group had access into the back of the rhino and giraffe enclosures for an up close look at these magnificent animals. They also had the opportunity to view the lions, tigers, primates, zebras, and more!

OLLI would like to thank Julie Brunton and the Peoria Zoo for a great tour!
