Counselor Programs

As a high school counselor, you know how important experiencing a campus is in the college search process.  Throughout the year, we offer many opportunities to give you a first-hand look at the Bradley Experience through counselor luncheons, various on campus events and two annual fly in programs for out of state counselors.  We trust your time spent with us will give you the tools you need to offer your students a head start as they consider Bradley.

  • Counselor Luncheons.  We host counselor luncheons throughout the country in cities such as: Chicago, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Los Angeles and Dallas, as well as throughout the state of Illinois.
  • On campus events.  For local counselors and those closer to campus we offer half day visit programs or bus trips to experience campus for a day.
  • Fly In Programs.  We offer two fly in programs (one in the fall and one in the spring) for out of state counselors.  We partner with various other colleges and universities in Central Illinois to provide you variety on your tour.
  • Meet our admission counselors.
