Winter Class Reminders
Now that the hustle and bustle of the holidays are over, it is time to relax, learn something new, and stay warm with OLLI at Winter Classes!
Winter Classes will be held on Tuesday - Friday, January 10 - 13, 2017, in the Michel Student Center. You can take four different classes for $95, which also includes a Kickoff buffet lunch on Tuesday, warm drinks throughout the day every day, and snacks every morning and afternoon during class breaks.
Parking on campus will be available during classes, so please feel free to park in any of the blue- or white-lined spaces near the Michel Student Center. Click here to view a map of campus.

Seeking Legacy Speech Volunteers
Laura Bruns, a lecturer in the Department of Communication at Bradley, is seeking OLLI volunteers to serve as subjects for her students' "Legacy Speeches" next semester.
You will be paired with a student who will interview you and write a speech in your honor for their class assignment. This volunteer opportunity would only require that you let the student interview you in person or by phone during the month of February 2017. You will be invited to watch the classroom speech and will be given a copy of the speech to keep!
Trivia Night Fundraiser - Thank You!
Thank you to everyone who participated in OLLI's Second Annual Trivia Night Fundraiser! We had a swell time "at the hop," testing our trivia knowledge, enjoying good company and food, winning fabulous raffle prizes, and even hula hooping!
The event was a huge success, raising over $8,000 -- nearly triple the funds from last year's inaugural trivia event! We feel very fortunate to receive such overwhelming support from our members, an anonymous matching donor, and our sponsors.
For their generous contributions to the event, we would like to thank our signature sponsor, Cypress Asset Management, and our supporting sponsors, Health Alliance Medicare, Heartis Senior Living Village, Heddington Oaks, and Thrivent Financial.
