Beyond the past
I just finished reading “Beyond the Books” in the Summer ’05 issue of Hilltopics, and I thoroughly enjoyed reflecting on their [emeriti professors’] tenure. I received my degree in music in 1961 and was a student of Dr. Allen Cannon. I had the privilege of accompanying him while I was a student, and what I learned from him in the classroom, I still use in my teaching.
When I was a student, Constance Hall was a women’s dormitory, and the Music School was in front of it, next door to the Sigma Chi fraternity. Looking at a map of the University now, I would never recognize it since I don’t get to visit Peoria.
I received a wonderful education at Bradley.
I enjoy reading Hilltopics. Over the years, it has become a very professional looking journal with interesting articles and great pictures.

Parents appreciate Parsons article
As parents of a current student at BU, we enjoy reading Hilltopics. I was most interested in the Parsons article (Summer ’05) and went to the Web to watch the video.

Hilltopics keeps alums up-to-date
I truly enjoy reading Bradley Hilltopics! It is a great tool to keep alumni, like myself, informed on the past, present, and future “happenings” around the University and community.
Keep up the good work!

Cecelia Chesko Wheeler ’42 Update
We enjoyed the Hilltopics…you are doing a great job. Saw lots of familiar faces in the issue, including Jimmy LaHood ’07. What a talented guy in every way.
Oh, good for the generosity of Cecelia Wheeler. What better place to give money than to the School of EDUCATION! Keep it coming.

Editor’s update: As of August 2005, more than $3.5 million has been given to the College of Education and Health Sciences from the Cecelia Chesko Wheeler ’42 estate. It is the fourth largest individual gift in Bradley’s history.
Touched by “Tunnel Vision”
I read the article “Tunnel Vision” by Nancy Ridgeway and was intrigued and inspired. Also, I related to and enjoyed the poem submitted by Meghan Daniels ‘07. As a former Bradley student, spouse of a disabled (MS) wife, and father of our daughter adopted from China, I have a deep respect for tolerance!
