Best of Campus: February
Once again basketball dominated this month’s photos with the Braves winning against Evansville and Missouri State, part of their run toward their back-to-back win in the Missouri Valley Conference Championship. And spring may be on the way soon, but we had a couple of snowfalls last month to blanket the campus in a veil of white. (All photos by Duane Zehr)

LAST OF WINTER?
Two light snowfalls covered Bradley’s campus last month, causing everyone to bundle up while they appreciate its pristine beauty.
