Alumni Connections

Director’s Corner
Tory McCord Jennetten ’96 

It was heartwarming to see so many alumni, students and friends on campus celebrating our alma mater during Homecoming 2015. We enjoyed a weekend teeming with activities, including the class of 1965’s 50th reunion, the soccer team defeating Loyola University Chicago, the football marker dedication, the annual Gary R. Tippett Memorial 5K Race and the Bids for the Braves Athletics Dinner and Auction.

While we celebrated the life of Lydia Moss Bradley at Founder’s Day Convocation, the Bradley University Alumni Association recognized the achievements of Khalid Al-Naif ’81, Adam Cohen ’02 and Matthew Noe ’02, adding them to its distinguished list of award recipients. The entire week will be a fantastic memory for many years to come. 

If you were unable to return to campus for Homecoming, I hope you will consider joining us at Carver Arena for Alumni Night, Feb. 20. The men’s basketball team will take on Drake University, and we will host our annual pregame gathering at the Peoria Civic Center. We also will celebrate Bradley’s 1,000th game in the Missouri Valley Conference and honor some of our outstanding alumni athletes. As plans develop, we will post them at bualum.org. Mark your calendar to join us in February! 

Hail, Red and White,
