In the nearly 11 years since I came “home” to Bradley University, alumni have demonstrated time and again that you are without rival in commitment and loyalty to your alma mater. I share your pride and consider it a great privilege to serve as your alumni director.
You are the heart of Bradley University, and the Bradley University Alumni Association (BUAA) is dedicated to providing a wide range of activities, resources and benefits to serve you. In addition, we wish to provide you with meaningful ways that you can give back to the University and our students. I invite you to explore the opportunities available to you today and to share your ideas for new programs with us.
Of course, most activities pale beside the excitement of introducing our new president to alumni across the country. President Joanne Glasser joins us in one of the most thrilling times in Bradley’s history. We are witnessing a Renaissance — a rebirth of our physical campus and rejuvenation of our spirit. Among the important projects being carefully considered is a new alumni center … a campus “home” where all alumni can unite in pride.
I invite each of you to join us on the journey — get involved, get connected, and in the words of one former student leader, get excited! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out just how easy it is.
I look forward to sharing this space with you in future issues of Bradley Hilltopics. Until next time, be sure to visit bualum.org to learn more about the BUAA and all the exciting opportunities available to you.
Hail Red and White!
