A Message from Student Affairs


We have a lot to celebrate. Through your resilience, responsiveness, patience, and collective and individual efforts, we can look back over the first part of the semester and see the difference you’ve made. As a tasty expression of our appreciation, we invite you to pick up a free fall treat Wednesday, Oct. 28 from 12:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. on the Olin Quad.

While you’re out and about on campus that day there will be another flu-shot clinic. Go to https://bradleyfluclinic2020.youcanbook.me to book your appointment. We have more than 400 shots still available and they cost only $1 for students.

Your mental wellbeing is at the forefront of our thoughts, and we recognize all things COVID-19 aren’t helping. Keep your eyes on our university social media accounts, the Bradley Unite page and the Bradley University coronavirus page for daily mental health tips starting Nov. 2. And, as always, please take advantage of Bradley Counseling Services if you need more personalized support. 

While we reflect and appreciate how far we’ve come, let’s also continue to work hard toward the goal of being on campus and with each other through Thanksgiving. Continue to be vigilant. Halloween represents another opportunity for us to prove ourselves. Bottom line, this Halloween will not look like Halloweens of the past, but it can be both safe and fun. Look for more information about what’s happening Halloween weekend in Presence and Hilltop Happenings, and don’t let your guard down. 

Another way to remain vigilant is by continuing to participate in our COVID-19 testing program. We’ve performed over 2,500 tests on-campus this fall. Thank you for being responsive when chosen to participate — it matters! We still have not seen evidence of the virus spreading in classrooms or other places where physical distancing and wearing facial coverings are practiced. 

Finally, stay tuned for a detailed message soon about spring 2021. We will have information on course registration, housing and more.

Keep up the good work,


Nathan P. Thomas
