Celebrating 20 Years!

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!

Pat Sullivan, Peoria native, entrepreneur, and co-developer of the city’s warehouse district, hosted OLLI members for a tour of the complex of downtown buildings that have been revitalized in recent years.

Members had lunch at Kellehers, then had a private, behind-the-scenes look at the Le Vieux Carre (“small quarters”) building on Water Street, a former buggy and implement warehouse built in the 1800s.

The tour consisted of winding through the renovated building for a look at apartments and office space. Sullivan explained how they re-use old doors, windows, and basically whatever they find to help decorate the space.

The group also walked across the street to the old Sealtest building. Here OLLI members learned of recent renovations to make this former dairy facility more apartments and office space.

OLLI thanks Pat Sullivan for sharing his vision with us, and hosting our tour of his downtown buildings.
