Final Reminders for Classes
OLLI Winter Classes begin today! As you bundle up and travel to campus this morning, please keep in mind the following reminders:
Most classes will be held in the Michel Student Center (915 N Elmwood Ave, Peoria). When you arrive, please stop by the registration table on the first floor to pick up your name badge and schedule, daily announcements, and other helpful materials.
Percussion Class in Dingeldine Music Center
As a reminder for our members taking the Tuesday/Thursday 9:00 a.m. percussion class, the OLLI shuttles will transport you to and from Dingeldine Music Center each day. Please wait for the shuttles at the main entrance of the Michel Student Center.
With the students away for winter break, parking on campus is open to the public. Feel free to park in any blue- or white-lined space near the Student Center, or in the Duryea Parking Deck (at the corner of St. James and Bradley Avenues). Please use caution when walking on campus to avoid any icy areas.
The OLLI shuttles will continually patrol the parking lots on campus to offer a ride to anyone walking to the Student Center from 8:00 - 9:00 a.m. If you need parking lot assistance at any time, please call the OLLI cell phone at (309) 258-4142.
Today's complimentary buffet lunch will feature Teriyaki top sirloin steak, Caesar salad, steamed rice, roasted Italian vegetables, and soft dinner rolls.
For lunches during the remainder of the week, you are welcome to visit the food court's Chik-Fil-A or deli, walk to one of the
near campus, or bring a sack lunch.
Each morning from
8:30 - 9:00 a.m., please start your day with our beverage service on the first floor of the Michel Student Center, just outside of the Marketplace food court. Our
breaks with refreshments and snacks (with healthy options) will take place at 10:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. in the same location. During the
afternoon breaks, Catherine will lead a brief yoga session on the second floor, so come on up and stretch with her!
