U.S. News & World Report listed the university in the Top 5 among regional universities, the highest rank for any Illinois school. It also listed us in the Top 10 for Best Value Schools among regional universities.
Other rankings from that publication had Bradley in the Top 5 for best colleges for veterans among Midwest schools and in the Top 30 for undergraduate engineering programs at schools not offering an engineering doctorate. These ranks also were the best for schools in the state.
In the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education rankings for student engagement, Bradley is again the top-ranked private school in the state and in the Top 25 nationally. More than 170,000 current students were surveyed and additional information was used to find out how well schools prepare their students for life and careers after graduation.
“In the midst of an incredibly challenging and often isolating time in the world, this ranking is a great reminder of what makes Bradley so special,” Provost Walter Zakahi ’78 said about the engagement poll.
The Princeton Review ranked Bradley among the top 386 schools nationally (out of 3,000) and as a 2021 Top Online Nursing Program. It also gave the university high marks for the undergraduate game design program (eighth nationally and the best in Illinois), internships (Top 25 nationally) and as a Best Value College.
Other top Bradley rankings came from Animation Career Review (Top 15 in the Midwest and Top 20 nationally for game design) and VIQTORY (Military Friendly School for the fifth straight year).
