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!

Summer Social: Saving Rocky Glen - June 26, 2014

Busy with regional trips this week, the Summer Social provided the perfect opportunity for OLLI members to relax, socialize, and of course, learn something new. This year's summer social featured special guest Ed Stermer from the Friends of Rocky Glen.

The social was held at Ravina on the Lakes, and guests also received a copy of Horse Shoe Bottoms by Tom Tippett, in which a portion of the story takes place in Rocky Glen. OLLI member Mary Ellen Krum kicked-off the event with a wonderful opener. Guests enjoyed a variety of buffet stations including, a mashed potato bar, pasta bar, meat-carving station, and even a cheesecake bar!!

After the delicious meal, OLLI member Sharon Amdall introduced the guest-of-honer Professor Ed Stermer. Ed discussed the history of Central Illinois' hidden gem Rocky Glen. The audience was all ears as Ed delivered an exciting and informative presentation, about the often over-looked role Peoria played in global geology.

Until Next Summer,

OLLI at Bradley
