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!

Henson Disposal and Midwest Fiber- May 1, 2014

On May 1, 2014, OLLI members traveled to the Bloomington/Normal area to visit two recycling facilities. First we visited Henson Disposal, a company that operates Central Illinois’ only construction and demolition recycling facility, which helps reduce the amount of construction debris sent to local landfills. Tim Kirk, co-owner, of this family owned business, was our personal tour guide. He explained the process of their facility and then showed us first hand how employees recycle construction debris.

After lunch at Lucca Grill, the group visited Midwest Fiber Recycling. OLLI learned about this new $8 million state-of-the-art single-stream Materials Recovery Facility. Marie Streenz, Development Manager, gave members a private tour to view recycling at work in the 86,400 square foot building hub.

OLLI thanks Henson Disposal and Midwest Fiber for such an informative day learning about the recycling process.
