Our alma mater came alive during Homecoming and Parents’ Weekend in October! More than 1,000 alumni, parents, students, and friends participated in the many activities on campus. Fond memories were recalled among old friends and classmates, and new memories were made as the Bradley community celebrated the opening of the Hayden-Clark Alumni Center.
In October alone, we welcomed an additional thousand visitors to the Alumni Center, and the consensus is that it is spectacular! As an alum, you’ll be transported back to the Bradley you remember — the dorm rooms, faculty, classmates, and campus events that made up your Bradley experience. Step into Mrs. Bradley’s “living room” to learn more about our strong and amazingly resourceful founder. Listen to DAVE SNELL ’76, the voice of the Bradley Braves, recount some of the most defining moments in Braves history.
You’re invited to visit us anytime, of course — the Hayden-Clark Alumni Center is open seven days a week — but I hope you’ll consider joining us for Alumni Weekend on January 20–21, 2012! The Bradley Braves take on Missouri State that Saturday evening — tickets are half-price for alumni when purchased through bualum.org. We’ll once again host our annual pre-game gathering at the Peoria Civic Center. It’s free with complimentary snacks and soft drinks, and sandwiches for purchase.
Additional plans are in the making for Alumni Weekend 2012, including the Bradley Scout alumni reunion and opportunities to gather together with classmates. Make plans now to join us in January!
