President’s Address

Hello BUBAA Family,

I am counting the days down as we approach the 2022 BUBAA Reunion. Can you believe it, less than a month to go? We are extremely excited about the excellent planning that is happening on a daily basis as we move closer to the reunion dates of April 22nd-24th, 2022.

To ensure the 2022 reunion is one that you will remember for years to come, our Reunion Committee is working hard on your behalf.

The theme of the reunion is “Unmasking Black Excellence,” and we are looking to bring honor to those who have paved the way for us all. At the same time, we continue to show our commitment towards helping build the road to future successful students as part of the BUBAA family.

BUBAA always wants to make sure that we are providing BU students with the opportunity to maximize their potential. We are not investing just with our words but with our money as well. Every financial investment, no matter the size, makes a difference.

When contributing to the University, please note that you want your contribution to go BUBAA Scholarships or the Barbara Penelton Endowed Scholarship. Click here to make your contribution.

Some media in Bradley University's current print, video and online materials was acquired before the COVID-19 pandemic. Media acquired after the pandemic began was done so in compliance with Bradley's COVID-19 safety protocols at the time. The ongoing safety of our faculty, staff and students is of the utmost concern during these unprecedented times.
