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!

Woodruff Career & Technical Center, Wednesday, January, 2015

Career and Technical Education was revived in 2011 in Peoria Public Schools, with most programs moving to one location, Woodruff Career and Technical Center. Housed on the basement and first floors of WCTC, the programs are open to all high school students in the District.

Students looking to gain hands-on experience, while using the academic skills obtained in their regular classes are encouraged to investigate this opportunity. Whether you are college bound or plan to enter the workforce following high school graduation, Career and Technical Education Programs will prepare you for a successful future.

Another aspect of the Woodruff Career and Technical Center is the Alternative Learning Program. This program provides smaller class sizes, different approaches to curriculum and instruction, and peer grouping. WCTC's Alternative Learning Program is open to all grades and provides a caring and supportive academic environment to every student.

The doors of Woodruff may have closed on the traditional structure of a local high school as we know it, but many wonderful educational programs and opportunities are still in existence for Peoria area students. Tom Bummer, Woodruff Career and Technical Center Principal, seems to have things moving in the right direction, and OLLI members were thrilled to see how the district is making this happen.
