Bradley Bits

Taking shape

Watch the action as the Alumni Quad at the far west side of campus continues to take shape. A webcam stationed atop Morgan Hall provides a great view. More green space, wrought iron fencing, and a statue of legendary coach A.J. Robertson are being installed. The statue of “Robbie” will be unveiled on October 12. See the transformation at

Eating it up

Bradley students got a taste of what Peoria has to offer at Taste of Bradley during Welcome Week. Frank Abdnour dishes up ice cream from The Spotted Cow as everything from pizza to steak to smoothies and ethnic favorites were featured from 20 vendors. Music and volleyball on the Quad rounded out the event. 

Fulbright scholar

After receiving a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship, BRITTANY HORTON ’12 headed to new adventures in July in South Korea. She’ll live with a host family and teach at a school for a year. Brittany is one of about 80 U.S. college graduates in the Fulbright program in Korea. 

President's night out

President Joanne Glasser led the cheering at the season-opening soccer game, a 2-0 victory over Eastern Illinois. Freshmen received free T-shirts, and many of those shirts continue to appear around campus. 

Sports camps

Elementary and high school students hit, kicked, dug, and ran on campus this summer. Nine Bradley sports teams sponsored camps or clinics for more than 1,000 budding athletes. Who knows? The next GAVIN GLINTON ’01 or HERSEY HAWKINS ’88 might have been among them.
