Homecoming 2014

River Jam on the RiverFront

Homecoming 2014 offered myriad activities in the spirit of last fall’s “Roll Out the Red.” For the first time, the Red & White Scrimmage showcased the women’s and men’s basketball teams along the Peoria RiverFront. The “Red & White River Jam” drew fans of all ages to watch both teams against a backdrop of lights glistening off the Illinois River. Meant to foster camaraderie within the Bradley community, Homecoming also hosted traditional on-campus festivities from the pep rally, the lighting of the “B” and the fireworks show, to new events including a T-shirt swap, where students could exchange their high school spirit gear for new Bradley T-shirts. Homecoming culminated with the soccer team celebrating a 1-0 win against the University of Central Arkansas at Shea Stadium.
