Welcome Week is a time for students to connect and reconnect with the Bradley family! The week is filled with opportunities to safely engage with students, faculty and staff. We are excited to have you at Bradley and can't wait to launch the new year with you.

We are highly focused your health and wellbeing so, many of these events will be held virtually and others will be done in small groups with physical distancing in place.
