I WISH I HAD COME HERE SOONER

Transferring to Bradley was a great idea for me after trying to find my fit at a large university and a community college. I was curious about transferring so I emailed an advisor and she responded quickly and was more than willing to help. With service like this, it’s hard to find anything to complain about since Bradley is willing to help you every step of the way.

POINTING THE WAY TO SUCCESS

I transferred from a large university where there might be 450 students in one classroom and you were just a number to the professors. At Bradley the small class sizes create one-on-one learning where you receive direct and personal attention. They are always on campus or can easily be found when needed. The professors want to help you and guide you to earning a good grade and succeeding in life.

STEPPING OUT FROM THE PAGES

I’ve been given the opportunity to expand my learning experience at Bradley by researching alongside Dr. Andersh. He is working on a molecule that has antibiotic and antifungal properties. We work on the synthesis and testing of a group of compounds that have both antifungal and analgesic properties. I’m learning how things are made and it’s showing me the other side of the medical field. I’m going beyond a textbook and applying what I’ve learned in the classroom to what I’m actually doing in the labs. Experience like this is a hard quality to find in an undergraduate student and Bradley has made it easy for me to have a killer resume and be spotted by the graduate schools where I want to go.

MY GREAT ESCAPE

I love to study at the library. Most of my peers study there and they tend to be goal oriented just like me. It’s an easy place to meet up with friends. It’s the central location that has everything you need minus the distractions of the dorm room.
