More than 60 years ago, what we know today as UNLV’s Paradise Campus opened as a grade school for  children living in the developing city of Las Vegas. A generation later, the retired adults of UNLV’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) that currently call the campus home are helping Paradise-area students with a holiday supply drive. During the first two weeks of November OLLI members collected educational games, books, and school supplies for at-risk elementary students attending the Paradise Professional Development School. Volunteers from the program used the donations to assemble 101 bags that were delivered to the school and will make the holidays a little brighter for the K-5 students. OLLI at UNLV wraps up its fall semester on December 6th and will begin its spring session on January 27th.
