Please Share Your OLLI Memories!

For OLLI's 25th anniversary, we are collecting your memories.

Select responses will be shared with the public as we celebrate our 25th anniversary. 

Please click here to share your personal anecdote – sweet, sad, or funny – from your time in OLLI.  It can be recent or from long ago.

Tell us about a person – an instructor, facilitator, trip host, or other – who had a significant impact on you.

Describe an experience in a class, study group, learning trip, lecture, cinema, or special event that had a significant impact on you.

Tell us how long you have been involved with OLLI and your name.  We prefer to attribute memories to their authors, but you may choose to remain anonymous.

You will not be able to access this form once you submit it, but you will automatically have an opportunity to submit another response. You may also email your responses to continue@bradley.edu.  

Thank you for helping us gather memories for our silver anniversary celebration this fall!

Mark Spenny Presents
at Kickoff Luncheon

OLLI was proud to welcome Mark Spenny, CEFCU President and Chief Executive Officer, as the keynote speaker at our Spring Kickoff Luncheon.

CEFCU is the Peoria area’s largest financial institution with assets over $5.9 billion.   

Mark has a Bachelors’ degree in Finance from Western Illinois University and an MBA from Bradley University (Go Braves!).   

In his presentation, he discussed how greater Peoria is truly a retirement destination, and presented information about the area's health care, cost of living, recreational options, and regional "gems," including OLLI!
