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 County Jail - Tuesday, March 24, 2015

OLLI members had another chance to visit with the Sheriff at the Peoria County Jail. During the trip, Peoria County Sheriff Mike McCoy led our private tour, along with Corrections Superintendent Brian Asbell.

On this behind-the-scenes tour of the Sheriff's department and the attached jail, McCoy provided a narrative about the county's law enforcement services. He discussed the importance of the interactive indoor shooting range in keeping the officer's skills honed.

We went through the intake area, viewing the jail's newer technological advances, including a closed circuit bonding system, computerized mug shot and booking system and a live scan fingerprint process system. Sheriff McCoy spent time with OLLI discussing the strategies and challenges facing the operations of the County Jail, as well as current community issues.

OLLI members spent time in the lockup portion of the facility and learned about the inmate's day-to day routines. They had a chance to visit an empty cell block and see up close just how small a cell can be.

OLLI would like to extend a huge thanks to Sheriff Mike McCoy and his staff for hosting our tour.
